Since it was first established in the 1970's the Applied Linguistics and Language Study series has become a major force in the study of practical problems in human communication and language education. Drawing extensively on empirical research and theoretical work in linguistics, sociology, psychology and education, the series explores key issues in language acquisition and language use.
Disciplinary Discourses: Social Interactions in Academic Writing presents a series of innovative studies focusing on eight disciplines and a variety of key genres to examine the relationships between the cultures of academic communities and their discoursal practices. It proposes a framework to account for the interactions between writers and their readers in published academic writing, draws clear teaching suggestions, and offers detailed methodological principles and suggestions to support further research.
