Exploring Professional Communication

Language in Action

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in applied linguistics, primarily designed for those entering postgraduate studies and language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative 'practice-to-theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. Exploring Professional Communication provides an accessible overview of the vast field of communication in professional contexts from an applied linguistics perspective. It explores the nature of professional communication by discussing various fundamental topics relevant for an understanding of this area.
The book is divided into eight chapters, each dealing with a specific area of professional communication, such as genres of professional communication, identities in the workplace, and key issues of gender, leadership and culture. Although the book's main approach to professional communication is an applied linguistics one, it also draws on insights from a range of other disciplines. Throughout Stephanie Schnurr takes an interactive approach that is reflected in the numerous examples of authentic discourse data from a variety of written and spoken contexts. Exploring Professional Communication is critical reading for postgraduate and upper undergraduate students of applied linguistics and communication studies.

Zitat
'This welcome textbook, richly exemplified with analyses of authentic spoken and written data, provides an accessible and thought-provoking contribution to the burgeoning field of professional workplace communication. The competent coverage of core concepts in discourse analysis in the context of topics which range from genre to gender, and identity to leadership, makes it an invaluable resource for advanced students. And as a welcome extra, the imaginative exercises (with 'answers' in the form of useful commentaries) will assuredly motivate students from a range of backgrounds.' Janet Holmes, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand 'Through its refreshingly new 'back to front approach' to the subject this textbook provides an engaging encounter with real life professional communication in a variety of settings. The text is accessible and persuasive in its discussion of key aspects of the subject, thanks also to extensive use of authentic data and exercises: the reader will never be too far from the subtleties and fascination of the discourse of professional practice'. Francesca Bargiela, University of Warwick, UK
