Camiciottoli, Belinda Crawford. Rhetoric in Financial Discourse: A Linguistic Analysis of ICT-Mediated Disclosure Genres. Vol. 26. Rodopi, 2013. Google Scholar. Web. 1 May 2015.
One of the most crucial components of corporate communication is the financial disclosure. Financial disclosure procedures have widely been adopted by companies for image projection and provision of information that shows the trustworthiness of the company. The author provides insight into how companies use financial disclosures to maintain communication with stakeholders as well as attract new investors.
The book offers the rhetorical linguistic analysis used in financial disclosures. The focus on the two major technology-mediated genres that are used. These genres are unexplored from a rhetorical perspective. They are earning releases and earning presentation. Financial writers and speakers employ rhetorical analysis in their communication to achieve professional goals in communicating to customers.
The book is key in explaining the language of finance and how people come to learn it. The language that is used by financial researchers, writers and speakers is also shown with regards to its impacts on the larger community. In the paper, the book provides information into the linguistic strategies that financial writers and presenters use to write financial articles.
