about

This volume investigates the issues of specialist email discourse conducted in Business English as a lingua franca (BELF) by specialists working in international teams within the field of project management. It discusses aspects of team language and team culture in professional international environments taking into consideration the tenets of anthropocentric linguistics. The research project, the results of which are presented in this book, was carried out on the basis of authentic business emails received from a global company. The results of the research project are divided into two parts: the first part focuses on conventions applied by project team members, whereas the second part is devoted to the illocutionary acts relevant to communication during the execution of global projects.
Justyna Zajac is Assistant Professor at the University of Warsaw. Her main research interests lie in intercultural business and specialist communication, communication in virtual project teams, the use of English as the business lingua franca (BELF) and communication audit.
