Book Information

   

Title: The Language of Business Meetings
Written By: Michael Handford
Description:

This innovative volume presents an in-depth study of the language used by
participants in business meetings. The cutting-edge research draws on the
Cambridge and Nottingham Business English Corpus (CANBEC), a unique
resource which brings together meetings of different types both within and
between companies, involving speakers whose roles and responsibilities
vary, and who represent a range of nationalities and first languages.
Keywords, concordance lines and discourse analysis provide thorough
insights into aspects such as the structural stages of meetings,
participants' discursive practices, interpersonal language and creativity,
and power and constraint. The author concludes by making practical
suggestions for using
these findings to inform the teaching of business English.
