Series Title: Handbooks of Applied Linguistics [HAL] / Communication Competence. Language and Communication Problems. Practical Solutions 3
Description:

This volume presents mayor contributions of Applied Linguistics to the
understanding of communications in the professions. The first two parts of this
book deal with the theoretical and methodological orientations of professional
communication studies, the history and development of professional
communication studies, highlighting the discursive turn of Applied Linguistic
research that goes far beyond the established paradigm of Language for
Specific Purposes. The third part - the core of this book - presents research into
professional practices from various domains (e.g. law, healthcare, business and
management, organizations), sites of engagement (as e.g. lawyer-client-
conference, doctor-patient interaction) and with respect to different themes that
are generalizable across domains and sites (as e.g. communicative aspects of
action and practice, of assessment and appraisal). In the final part,
professionals from various domains evaluate the contribution to their work so far
made by Applied Linguistics.
