Description:

This book examines how knowledge is created in key areas of day-to-day
practice with the aid of linguistic means. Using examples from medicine,
law, teaching/learning interactions and mass media, the book investigates
what is displayed interactively as knowledge and/or what is considered to
be knowledge. The book is divided into four sections which discuss the
following key questions: how is knowledge embedded in the respective
situation, how is knowledge brought forth interactively, how do
institutions present knowledge effectively and how is knowledge
disseminated in the (mass) media?
