This edited volume makes a valuable contribution to the burgeoning research field of English as a lingua franca. In a pioneering step, the collection is exclusively devoted to the English email discourse of Chinese speakers. The studies address innovative topics related to various contexts and relationships, using several different approaches and theories, which taken together shed light on how English serves as a lingua franca in multiple types of global written communication. The research topics presented are organized into four thematic sections, including emails from students to professors, emails from students to the international academic community, emails from peer to peer, and emails at the workplace.
A Reference Grammar of Chinese is a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the linguistic structure of Chinese, covering all of the important linguistic features of the language and incorporating insights gained from research in Chinese linguistics over the past thirty years. With contributions from twenty-two leading Chinese linguists, this authoritative guide uses large-scale corpora to provide authentic examples based on actual language use. The accompanying online example databases ensure that a wide range of exemplars are readily available and also allow for new usages to be updated. This design offers a new paradigm for a reference grammar where generalizations can be cross-checked with additional examples and also provide resources for both linguistic studies and language learning. Featuring bilingual term lists, this reference grammar helps readers to access relevant literature in both English and Chinese and is an invaluable reference for learners, teachers and researchers in Chinese linguistics and language processing.
After nearly 10 years of my life working for Chinese companies, most of them the richest and most powerful, there were many things that started to become obvious for me and that clearly differentiate the results between these and western companies. This acknowledgment became clearer when I started doing business with the Chinese and making many Chinese friends in the business world. And even more when I noticed the differences in business models that they apply in different countries, and from the smallest to the biggest investments. The Chinese are very flexible and that's what makes them more efficient in creating and running a business, but there are common rules to everything they do, that could actually make anyone profit as much as them and from anything. This book resumes 10 of those very important values. These are the most significant values seen in all the rich and important companies I've seen in China and abroad. They are resumed here in a way that can easily be perceived by anyone that wants to improve any type of business, including the smallest, but also to show how to start a new business in a way that can be quickly profitable. These insights are valuable to anyone that wants to keep up with the speed and determination of Chinese business owners spread all over the globe.
