Persuasion in Specialised Discourses (Postdisciplinary Studies in Discourse) By Olga Dontcheva-Navratilova, Martin Adam, Renata Povolná Cover Image


This book examines the concept of persuasion in written texts for specialist audiences in the English and Czech languages. By exploring a corpus of academic research articles, corporate reports, religious sermons and user manuals the authors aim to reveal similarities and differences in rhetorical strategies across cultures and genres. They draw on Biber and Conrad's (2009) model for contextualising interaction in specialised discourses, Bell's (1997) framework for the analysis of participants roles, Swales' (1990) genre analysis approach for considering genre constraints and Hyland's (2005) metadiscourse model for investigating writer-reader interaction. The result is a book which will appeal to researchers and students in Discourse Studies, especially those with an interest in genre and rhetorical strategies.
