Reviews

'What Business Discourse does do is give a wide-ranging yet customized and intimate tour of business discourse studies guided by erudite scholars who are generous in sharing their research resources and infectious in their enthusiasm. For applied linguistics and language teachers coming fresh to business discourse research this book must be an absolute treasure, for other business discourse analysts it is a profitable and enjoyable read.' - Brendan K. O'Rourke, Discourse& Communication
