Title: Specialized Languages in the Global Village
Subtitle: A Multi-Perspective Approach
Edited By: Carmen Pérez-Llantada
Maida Watson
Description:

The status of LSP (Languages for Specialised Purposes) in the contemporary
socio-cultural context is an ongoing central issue of scholarly debate.
Specialised languages in the global village examines the impact of
globalisation on intercultural communication within specialised communities
of practice. The contributions of the volume provide linguistically and
pedagogically-informed discussion on modes of communication practice in
professional and institutional domains, frames of social action and the
construction of professional identities. The contributors also address issues
of languages and social entrepreneurship, and the acquisition and
development of linguistic/cultural competence in foreign languages for
specialised purposes. The edition is a valuable reading for researchers in
LSP, specialists in the fields of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and
scholars in the area of rhetoric and composition. It is also of interest for
professional translators, language editors and language advisors in the fields
of specialised academic/professional communication. LSP instructors and
foreign language teachers will also find informed guidelines and useful
pedagogical proposals for classroom implementation.
