Communication Audit in Globally Integrated R«U38»D Project Teams

A Linguistic Perspective


Justyna Alnajjar

Communication audit is a relatively new field of research, which has so far been investigated from a managerial point of view. Linguists have not yet researched it. This book summarises existing, mainly managerial, approaches to communication audits and brings to the forefront a linguistic perspective on them. It showcases that their essence is to capture and assess the actual communication behaviour of auditees. The proposed communication audit model, communication audit procedures, and linguistic form sheet can be applied and further developed by scientists interested in taking on research into communication and by practitioners who wish to conduct communication audits in practice.

This research project was carried out with the help of a scholarship for outstanding young scientists from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education (2013–2016). I would like to thank this institution for its financial support.

My heartfelt thanks and gratitude go to Professor Sambor Grucza, the series editor, for his insightful suggestions, guidance, and encouragement throughout the research and writing process. Thank you for giving me the confidence to undertake this project and for setting deadlines! Above all thank you for reading an earlier version of the manuscript and providing invaluable comments on the initial shortcomings during many long-lasting discussions.

I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Professor Claudia Maria Riehl, who created the opportunity for me to conduct research at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and use the university’s resources. Without her openness and invaluable help this book would not be possible.
