English in academic and professional settings has received great attentionover the last 50 years, as its use has become a key asset for anyoneinterested in improving his/her chances of communicating internationally.However, it still offers rich opportunities for teachers and researchers workingon English in specific settings. The aim of English for Professional andAcademic Purposes is to offer an overview of several topics within thefield of discourse analysis applied to English in academic and professionaldomains. The book compiles contributions from different origins, ranging fromJapan to the USA and several European countries, and covers English as anative, second, foreign and international language. It also deals with variousspecialities, including academic writing, business discourse or English formedicine, nursing, maritime industry and science and engineering. Thisvolume is divided into three sections: Discourse Analysis of English forAcademic Purposes, Professional English and EPAP Pedagogy, since it wasconceived as a contribution to the research on how English is analysed asboth the discourse of and for effective communication in academic andprofessional settings, and how it can be applied to teaching. This manuscriptoffers some fresh insights for those involved or interested in this field ofexpertise, in an attempt to shed some light on its latest innovations.
