Broadening the ESP Umbrella.
Fanning, Paul
English for Specific Purposes, v12 n2 p159-70 1992
The fragility of English for Special Purposes (ESP) is examined in the context of a particular British ESP course, European Business Administration. Issues include the characteristic ESP time pressure, the treatment of "hard" terminology in English for Academic Purposes (EAP), the nonlinguistic subject matter of EAP courses, and the use of literary texts in EAP.
