Research on English Language and Communication in Business - A Bibliography, 1988-1992.
Kennedy, Chris, Comp.; And Others
The bibliography lists studies of English language use in business communication. The first section cites research undertaken from a language or communication perspective, and the second section contains research from a management or business viewpoint. Within each of these sections, research is divided into that dealing with written business communication (including business letters and memoranda, facsimile and telex, reports and minutes, communicative effectiveness and reader response, gender, applied studies, and technology) and that focusing on oral business communication (including meetings, negotiations, presentations, interviews, communicative effectiveness and listener response, and applied studies). A third section lists research on cross-cultural differences and language barriers in business communication, and a fourth lists recent work at Birmingham University (England). A brief note on a business English corpus under development at Birmingham University is also included. Appended materials include lists of the journals surveyed, additional sources, and key words used in computer database searching. (MSE)
