Title: Constructing Interpersonality
Subtitle: Multiple Perspectives on Written Academic Genres
Description:

The view that academic discourse is, by definition, impersonal has long
been superseded. It seems unquestionable now that the interpersonal
component of texts, that is, the ways in which the writers project
themselves and their audience in the discourse, is an essential factor
determining the success of scholarly communication and has become a
fundamental issue in the field of English for Academic Purposes (EAP).
Interpersonality is the key issue around which the articles in this edited
book focus on. The eighteen contributions included in this volume provide a
wide exploratory view of the many academic genres in which interpersonality
is manifested and the various analytical approaches from which the textual
manifestation of that interpersonality can be studied. The varied origin of
the contributors is also representative of the global interest that the
issue of interpersonality arouses in the field of academic discourse
analysis at an international level. The present volume constitutes a highly
valuable tool for applied linguists and discourse analysts with an interest
in EAP as well as for students, instructors and language teachers
interested in academic discourse. The book may also be of interest to other
agents intervening in the research publication process, such as
translators, proofreaders, reviewers and editors.
