The author of the best-selling 30 Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary, Dan Strutzel, now puts his focus on communicating successfully in the business world! Business is just like any sector or topic, with its own language, customs, codes, and terminologies. Different aspects of business can have their own distinctive terminology, which can also overlap. For instance, words and phrases from the realm of sales can also apply to management or finance under a variety of circumstances. In Vocabulary Power for Business, Dan presents 500 words and short expressions from a variety of different business categories. Each section introduces approximately 25 words. Dan discusses each word or phrase and its definition. He then, reinforces the word and its meaning with another example in a sentence. There are four sections on banking and finance, four on marketing, and four on negotiation. Other sections focus on sales, entrepreneurship, human resources, e-business, and leadership. The book's intention is to be entertaining, informative, and inspiring. As the world changes, language changes with it - and both are changing very fast. With Vocabulary Power for Business, you'll keep pace with those changes and watch your career benefit as a result!

HOW IS THIS TOEFL BOOK DIFFERENT? This TOEFL book is different because it uses an integrated vocabulary learning system called recycling. Recycling is simple. Each exercise is divided into four quizzes. Quiz 1, a multiple-choice vocabulary quiz, introduces ten new words. Next, you will do Quiz 2, which is a sentence-completion quiz based on the ten words in Quiz 1. Next, you will do Quiz 3, a spelling quiz. The speaker in the audio will say the same ten words in turn. You will then have ten seconds to spell each word by saying it and typing it. Finally, you will do Quiz 4, which is a 60-word typing test based on the ten new words you have been recycling through Quizzes 1, 2 and 3, plus words, phrases and idioms recycled from previous exercises. BONUS MATERIAL Learn essential rhetorical strategies and a test-proven way to develop opinion-based and fact-based TOEFL essays.

Ever wanted to ameliorate your atavistic lexicon, engage in a little intellectual badinage or been discombobulated by tricky diction? 500 Words You Should Know has you covered. Words are beautiful and versatile things, but when used incorrectly they can lose a lot in transition, and the more complex the word, the more misused it can become. And as words eternally evolve in their everyday use, they can begin to be interpreted as something other than their original meaning. 500 Words You Should Know will inspire the reader to use uncommon words in their correct context, to utilize the English language to its full potential, and to test themselves on the words they think they already know.

This book examines reports that are written by reviewers of submissions to a peer-reviewed journal. This includes a thorough study of the reports from the perspectives of context, content and genre, as well as from the point of view of pragmatics and politeness. The author examines the use of evaluative language, and the roles reviewers assume as they make their evaluations. He also explores how reviewers learn to write these reports. He then discusses the results of these analyses from the point of view of reviewer training, making suggestions for further research in the area of editorial peer review. The demystification of this occluded genre will be of benefit to doctoral students and early career academics not yet familiar with the peer review process, as well as those working in the broader areas of English for Specific Purposes and English for Academic Purposes, discourse analysis and writing for publication.
