Title: Cross-Linguistic and Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Academic Discourse
Edited By: Eija Suomela-Salmi
Fred Dervin
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20193
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 193
Description:

The goal of this volume is to examine academic discourse (AD) from
cross-linguistic and cross-cultural perspectives. The adjective
Cross-cultural in the volume title is not just limited to national
contexts but also includes a cross-disciplinary perspective. Twelve
scientific fields are under scrutiny in the articles. One of the unique
aspects of the volume is the inclusion of a variety of foreign languages
(English (as a lingua franca), Spanish, French, Swedish, Russian, German,
Italian, and Norwegian). Besides, in several articles dealing with oral AD,
comparisons and parallels are also established with written AD. The
research methodologies used in the studies are varied and they offer an
overview of the diversity and richness of approaches to AD. All in all, it
is hoped that the volume appeals not only to young researchers but also to
confirmed scholars interested in cross-linguistic and cross-cultural
aspects of AD. It will also be of interest to language teachers or teachers
who are involved with e.g. international students and academic mobility.
