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