English for Specific Purposes: The Preservation of the Species (Some Notes on a Recently Evolved Species and On the Contribution of John Swales to Its Preservation and Protection).
Bloor, Meriel
English for Specific Purposes, v17 n1 p47-66 1998
Argues that linguist John Swales has consistently worked to maintain English for Specific Purposes (ESP) as a distinct field of study in which practice is firmly founded in theory. Swales has developed the concept of "genre" in ESP into a fully articulated theory, allowing analysis of language that is contextually situated in terms of both field and discourse community.
