Title: Space, Time and the Construction of Identity
Subtitle: Discursive Indexicality in Cultural, Institutional and Professional Fields
Edited By: Rita Salvi
Janet Bowker
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/?431254
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Volume 166
Description:

Given the consolidated position of English as the international language for communication in business and management, as well as in institutional contexts, this book depicts a wide panorama of encounters where identity, image and reputation are a key focus in creating effective interactions. The main theme of the work is how temporal and spatial meaning representations in language reflect and, in turn, construct these personal, professional and corporate identities. From each chapter different sociolinguistic realities emerge which affect English, as it is used by both native and non-native speakers, especially in the relationship between local or national cultures and the global professional discourse community.

In this context not only have domain-specific language features been analysed, but also the communication strategies and interactive patterns at work in how different geo-political cultures construe, manifest and adjust their identities over the course of time and in varying physical, virtual, and cognitive spaces.
