Languages of Science in the Eighteenth Century
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences. (Nordiska sprÄk, Scandinavian Languages, FUMS/Advanced Studies in modern Swedish)
1997 (English)Collection (editor) (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Internationally, there is increasing research and interest in the processing of the production and reception of texts for scientific purposes and in the historical development of genres and registers within Languages for Specific Purposes (LSP), psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, anthropology, and the sociology of science.

Studies of professional communication have traditionally been biased towards the written medium and have been carried out with little, if any, connection to LSP. Disciplinary boundaries and interest groupings have thus kept these different approaches to the study of professional communication and interaction separate. The editors of this volume unite these different perspectives and approaches and bring together recent research from linguistics, sociolinguistics, ethnography of communication, anthropology and sociology to provide an up-to-date analysis of different varieties of professional discourse and their historical development. Chapters written by leading exponents in the field deal with the core theoretical issue of how language, written genres and spoken discourse are constructed as a successive and continuous interplay between language and social realities. The volume include chapters on the moral construction of discourse in the social care professions, the discourse of dispute negotiation, narrative accounts in the clinical research, doctor-patient interaction, legal and other kinds of institutional discourse. A key texts for students of applied lingustics and sociolinguistics of both advanced, undergraduate and MA levels.
