Domain-specific discourse in English forms a continuum across the academic, professional and technical genres of all areas of knowledge. This collection of papers by scholars working in a variety of disciplines, cultural and institutional contexts forms an analytical and methodological framework for the discussion of a wide range of writing-related issues, problems and practices. The diversity of topics and perspectives represented here - including corpus-based approaches, discourse analysis and contrastive rhetoric, teaching methodology and domain-specific literacy, criticalness, linguistic ascendancy and the emergence of scientific English, identity and social epistemology - attests to the vitality and variety of sociolinguistic research in this complex and rapidly developing field.

Whether it’s for a professional document, a school paper, an Internet blog, or something more personal, effective communication depends on clear, concise, and grammatically correct writing. Punctuation, spelling, and grammar rules can trip up anyone, while organization and word choice can make writing memorable—or banal. The Handy English Grammar Answer Book is an engaging guide to writing with clarity for all occasions. It offers fundamental principles, grammar rules, and punctuation advice, as well as insights on writing for different occasions and audiences. From a brief history of the English language to the deconstruction—and explanation—of the different parts of a sentence, and from showing how to punctuate correctly to how to organize a well-argued essay, this easy-to-use reference answers nearly 500 questions and offers fun facts on the English language and its usage, including How did English become a language spoken worldwide? What is a sentence fragment? When do I use “that” versus “which”? How do I use materials ethically on my own websites? How do I write an outline? Several appendices, including model papers and sample writing for every occasion, a glossary of commonly used terms, a bibliography, and an index add to the book's usefulness.
