English Grammar For Economics And Business 2nd edition

English Grammar For Economics And Business 2nd edition
Author: Patricia Ellman
Publisher: PerfectCopy
ISBN: 978-87-403-0653-8
Date: 2014

Format: PDF
Size: 3.27 Mb
This innovative book is a must for all those students and professors of Economics and Business Studies with English as a Foreign Language (EFL) who need to write academic texts in English (essays, papers, Masters and Doctoral theses, articles, books). It contains pertinent examples of the various aspects of grammar and style which are most relevant to these particular users, as well as providing editing tips to produce a polished final text. Uniquely, it deals in depth with the minefield of the articles, the/a,an, which are frequently misused by EFL authors whose mother tongue has no articles. This detailed explanation culminates in a key Diagnostic Test, so readers can practice using their grasp of the articles in most concrete situations, within the context of a short essay on global warming and its economic implications. Although the book is targeted at EFL authors, even native English speakers, especially beginners in academic writing, could benefit from it.

Scientific and Technical Translation

Technical translation (and technical terminology) encompasses the translation of special language texts. 1. Style and Register covers clarity of style, culture-specific and author-reader conventions and expectation. 2. Special Applications deals with the contribution of translation to the dissemination of science. 3. Training and Autodidactic Approaches for Technical Translators: translators must master a broad range of frequently unanticipated topics, as well as linguistic competence. 4. Text Analysis and Text Typology as Tools for Technical Translators focuses attention on text typology and SGML in human translation and CAT. 5. Translation-Oriented Terminology Activities explores the different aspects of terminology: knowledge management, language planning, terminology resources and representation of concept systems.

Peter Dainty, "Phrasal Verbs and Idioms: Pre-intermediate - Advanced" 
2002 | pages: 79 | ISBN: 1900702622 | PDF | 3,4 mb

A key objective for students who have come to study in the UK is to improve their fluency in 'real English' - English as native speakers speak it. Perhaps the major obstacle in achieving this is to learning the quirky idioms and phrasal verbs with which English is so liberally endowed.
