Reading Science looks at the distinctive language of science and
technology and the role it plays in building up scientific
understandings of the world. It brings together discourse analysis
and critical theory for the first time in a single volume. This
edited collection examines science discourse from a number of
perspectives, drawing on new rhetoric, functional linguistics and
critical theory. It explores this language in research and
industrial contexts as well as in educational settings and in
popular science writing and science fiction. The papers also
include consideration of the role of images (tables and figures) in
science writing and the importance of reading science discourse as
multi-modal text. The internationally renowned contributors include
M. A. K. Halliday, Charles Bazerman and Jay Lemke.
