Abstract:

This volume focuses on work situations in Europe, North America and South-Africa, such as academic, medical and public sector, or business settings, inwhich participants have to make constant use of more than one language tocooperate with partners, clients, or colleagues. Central questions are how thesocial and linguistic organization of work is adapted to the necessity ofusingdifferent languages and how multilingualism impinges on the communicativeoutcome of different types of discourse or genres. Thus, the authors are allinterested in multilingual practices 'at work', which is to say howdifferent formsof multilingual communication are managed, flexibly adjusted to, acquired,and/or improved in a given workplace setting that often calls for particularimplicit or explicit language policies. Thus, this volume contributes tothe studyof workplace communication in a globalized world by drawing on different typesof authentic data.
