The Routledge Handbook of Language and Professional Communication provides a broad coverage of the key areas where language and professional communication intersect and gives a comprehensive account of the field.

The four main sections of the Handbook cover:

Approaches to Professional Communication

Practice

Acquisition of Professional Competence

Views from the Professions

This invaluable reference book incorporates not only an historical view of the field, but also looks to possible future developments. Contributions from international scholars and practitioners, focusing on specific issues, explore the major approaches to professional communication and bring into focus recent research.

This is the first handbook of language and professional communication to account for both pedagogic and practitioner perspectives and as such is an essential reference for postgraduate students and those researching and working in the areas of applied linguistics and professional communication.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A handbook like this is long overdue. Professional communication, especially from the workplace vantage point, has long been overshadowed by interest in exclusively academic communication. Bhatia and Bremner have brought together a host of specialists in English for specific purposes, genre analysis, business communication and other related areas, as well as representatives of such fields as banking and law, all of whom contribute to what becomes, in effect, a compelling argument for learning more about written, spoken, and multimodal communication in professional communities.'

Diane Belcher, Georgia State University, USA
