Title: Advice in Discourse
Edited By: Holger Limberg

Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 221
Description:

This multi-faceted collection of research papers on "Advice in Discourse"
focuses on advisory practices in different contexts. Data is drawn from
academic, educational and training settings, health-related practices, and
computer-mediated communication. The languages involved are Cantonese,
English, Finnish, Japanese, Spanish and Russian. The chapters treat
professional and institutional practices, practices that contain peer
interaction within an institutional framework, and non-institutional peer
interaction, as well as solicited and non-solicited advice in written and
spoken form. The work reported on clearly demonstrates the complexity of
the advisory activity, which needs to be studied in its cultural framework
and interactional context. The richness and diversity of this practice is
studied from different methodological angles, covering qualitative and
quantitative as well as theoretical and empirical analyses. The volume
provides a comprehensive introduction to the research field,
thought-provoking theoretical discussions and extensive references for
future research. It is essential for linguists, advice-practitioners and
for those who want to learn more about the discourse of advice.
