"The language of business, economics and finance: A corpus-driven, analytical discourse" approach explores the discourse of economics and the way it is used and organized in the business section, and in the finance and economics section of "The Economist". The author brings together methodologies of critical discourse analysis, systemic functional linguistics and corpus linguistics allowing the texts to be explored from different perspectives while providing multiple insights. The theoretical underpinnings of this work involve the ideas of preeminent theorists such as Foucault, Fairclough, Halliday, and Sinclair. The two sections of "The Economist" are investigated with a corpus-driven approach to the analysis of texts and from the ideational, interpersonal and textual viewpoints (i.e., in terms of content, the writer/audience relationship, and discourse organization). "The language of business, economics and finance" will appeal to students and researchers of Applied Linguistics, English Language, and Business Studies.

Abstract

"The language of business, economics and finance: A corpus-driven, analytical discourse" approach explores the discourse of economics and the way it is used and organized in the business section, and in the finance and economics section of "The Economist". The author brings together methodologies of critical discourse analysis, systemic functional linguistics and corpus linguistics allowing the texts to be explored from different perspectives while providing multiple insights. The theoretical underpinnings of this work involve the ideas of preeminent theorists such as Foucault, Fairclough, Halliday, and Sinclair. The two sections of "The Economist" are investigated with a corpus-driven approach to the analysis of texts and from the ideational, interpersonal and textual viewpoints (i.e., in terms of content, the writer/audience relationship, and discourse organization). "The language of business, economics and finance" will appeal to students and researchers of Applied Linguistics, English Language, and Business Studies.
