Abstract:

This book reflects the vigorous interest in studies of business
discourse(s) and culture(s) emerging from various Asian communities. It
also records the diversity of methodological approaches, ontological
perspectives and topics characterising a number of studies conducted by
Asian and Western scholars on cultural and linguistic strategies and
preferences identifiable in Asian or Asian-Western business interactions.

The volume is structured in two parts, including chapters that address
linguistic and textual issues (Part I) and cultural and pragmatic issues
(Part II) of Asian business discourse(s). Even though the different domains
identified - linguistic, textual, pragmatic and cultural - have been
combined to provide useful organising labels, they remain strictly
interrelated as their occurrence and variation have significant
implications on one another.
