Book Information


Title: Communication in Global Corporations
Subtitle: Successful Project Management via Email
Written By: Justyna Zajac
Series Title: Warschauer Studien zur Germanistik und zur Angewandten Linguistik - Band 8

This volume investigates the issues of specialist email discourse conducted in Business English as a lingua franca (BELF) by specialists working in international teams within the field of project management. It discusses aspects of team language and team culture in professional international environments taking into consideration the tenets of anthropocentric linguistics. The research project, the results of which are presented in this book, was carried out on the basis of authentic business emails received from a global company. The results of the research project are divided into two parts: the first part focuses on conventions applied by project team members, whereas the second part is devoted to the illocutionary acts relevant to communication during the execution of global projects.
