The many aspects of communication between insiders and outsiders and between professionals and their clients illustrate the complexity of such discourses and provide essential modes of understanding. This book is a 'must' for anyone working in this field!"—Ruth Wodak, professor of linguistics, University of Vienna, Austrian Academy of Science
"Language is at the heart of professional work. Here is a book that shows what can be achieved when expert linguists really engage with professional practice across a wide terrain."—Nikolas Coupland, Professor and Chair, Centre for Language and Communication Research, Cardiff, Wales
