This volume focuses on work situations in Europe, North America and South-Africa, such as academic, medical and public sector, or business settings, in which participants have to make constant use of more than one language to cooperate with partners, clients, or colleagues. Central questions are how the social and linguistic organization of work is adapted to the necessity of using different languages and how multilingualism impinges on the communicative outcome of different types of discourse or genres. Thus, the authors are all interested in multilingual practices 'at work', which is to say how different forms of multilingual communication are managed, flexibly adjusted to, acquired, and/or improved in a given workplace setting that often calls for particular implicit or explicit language policies. Thus, this volume contributes to the study of workplace communication in a globalized world by drawing on different types of authentic data.

What else could be hidden? It is from this questioning that comes the genre Lost World Fiction. Our first lost world is the work of the author of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Professor Challenger takes us to the Amazon Rainforest where dinosaurs hide among isolated tribes and a terrible ape-like tribe. H. P. Lovecraft takes us on a disastrous expedition to Antarctica. There exploring scientists have an encounter with the monstrous and the bizarre. In this novel, Lovecraft inaugurates the concept of "Ancient Aliens", an idea that is trending until our days in the History Channel. Royalty of the pulp magazines era, Edgar Rice Burrouhgs takes us across the seas. Influenced by Jules Verne and Conan Doyle, this lost world has creatures, dinosaurs and a set of natural laws that defies travelers' understanding. This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know. If you liked this book, look for the other titles in the series, we are sure you will like some of the topics.
