Common ground: Shared interests in ESP and communication studies
The papers in this volume were selected from contributions to the UWIST/SELMOUS joint conference ‘Communication in English’ held at the University of Aston in Birmingham in September 1982. Referring to the conference, the editors note a ‘growing convergence of interests and concerns’ between the fields of ESP and communication studies, and they emphasise the need for better contact between the two ‘[halves] of the profession’ along with ‘the need for a sociolinguistic basis for course and syllabus design, and the need to emphasise learning as much as teaching’.
