Abstract: Studying language and communication at work implies that
we connect them to the very processes, activities, and practices that
constitute organizations or organizational phenomena. We demonstrate
in this chapter that language and communication at work can
mean many things and that there are a variety of theoretical and
methodological approaches that can be used for such analysis. Four
characteristic features of such studies are highlighted: (1) interest in
the communicative constitution of organization, (2) focus on discursive
or communicative practices, (3) emphasis on temporal aspects and
dynamics, and (4) placing language and communication in its sociomaterial
context. Not all studies can focus on all these aspects, but these
features are central in this nascent stream of research.
