This multi-faceted collection of research papers on Advice in Discourse focuses on advisory practices in different contexts. Data is drawn from academic, educational and training settings, health-related practices, and computer-mediated communication. The languages involved are Cantonese, English, Finnish, Japanese, Spanish and Russian. The chapters treat professional and institutional practices, practices that contain peer interaction within an institutional framework, and non-institutional peer interaction, as well as solicited and non-solicited advice in written and spoken form. The work reported on clearly demonstrates the complexity of the advisory activity, which needs to be studied in its cultural framework and interactional context. The richness and diversity of this practice is studied from different methodological angles, covering qualitative and quantitative as well as theoretical and empirical analyses. The volume provides a comprehensive introduction to the research field, thought-provoking theoretical discussions and extensive references for future research. It is essential for linguists, advice-practitioners and for those who want to learn more about the discourse of advice.

Table of Contents
Advice in Discourse is a groundbreaking book that demonstrates the importance of advice giving and receiving in our modern world, and it provides a broad range of approaches to its study. A must-read not only for discourse analysts, sociolinguists and speech act theorists but also for practitioners in all kinds of advisory contexts themselves.”
“Each paper in this collection can be considered as a practical example to spotlight one specific communicative act and to investigate it in specific fields of occurrence. Therefore, it can be used as a comprehensive guidance book for discourse analysts and sociolinguists. The richness and diversity of the research presented in this book can be seen from the range of languages that it involves, such as English, Cantonese, Finnish, Japanese, Spanish and Russian. As well, the qualitative and quantitative research methodologies in studying advice in discourse and extensive references for future research included are invaluable for both advanced learners and beginners of discourse analysis.”
“The collection makes valuable contributions on a number of issues [...]. The book unveils the enormous linguistic and relational complexity of advice-giving in a variety of settings and cultures, and is a fascinating reading for those interested in advising practices from a linguistic, communicative, ethical, pragmatic, and socio-cultural perspective.”
