Abstract

Abstract

In this article I propose my view on the main research domains in language and communication. The first domain is concentrated on characteristics of communication products and the effects on a broad range of variables. Special attention is needed for the context of mandated disclosure, with guidelines for communication formulated by governments and managers. In this domain our research not only helps to improve communication practice, but also might criticize naïve presuppositions. The second domain is concentrated on processes of communication. The third domain is related to the context of training and education. Finally, the traditional Dutch label for research in language and communication (taalbeheersing) is criticized.
