Titel: "What does ‘value’ really mean and to whom? Using tools of (corpus) linguistics to read and interpret meaning trajectories in business discourse " - D2.2.228 - 13.06.2023, 10:00 - 12:00


This workshop will showcase how the tools and insights from (corpus) linguistics can be effectively used to help us ‘read’ and ‘understand’ the specialised discourse of business communication; we know that meanings are never set in stone and change as words move from context to context. The workshop will explore in particular how business communication employs and exploits multiple meanings to get particular messages across. Examples will be drawn from the discourse of performance reviews and integrated business reporting.
