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.

In the first instance, it is crucial to analyse the existing definitions of the communication audit in order to better comprehend the idea behind it. It is necessary to understand the aims and methodology of the communication audit. It is also important to understand the motivation behind the research into the communication audit and to take a closer look at research studies devoted to the communication audit. Therefore, in Part One of the book, which can be regarded as mainly referential, I attempt to present how scholars describe and understand the communication audit, and what they consider to be of greatest importance to their research into the communication audit and further application of their research results. More specifically, in Chapter 1 I give a general overview of the research activities concerning the communication audit, i.e. I focus on the definitions of the communication audit provided by scholars representing various disciplines, on the history of research into the communication audit, and on current research developments. In Chapter 2, I present a critique of research into the communication audit from a linguistic point of view. In the course of the discussion, in...
