2. English for Science and Technology : A Discourse Approach (Cambridge Language Teaching Library) by Louis Trimble, Michael Swan (Editor), Paperback: 192 pages, Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Louis Trimble has been involved for nearly 20 years in the development of English for science and technology (EST), and in this book he describes the approach which he and others have developed. It starts from the premise that in order to understand the written EST found in technical manuals, textbooks, papers etc., it is first necessary to have an understanding of the discourse structure of these texts. Here he gives a very full description, with many examples, of the various significant features of EST discourse, such as types of classification, definition, instruction etc. The book also describes the ‘individualising process’ whereby students bring their own specialised material into the course; and the last chapter, demonstrates how a particular course can be organised and structured.
