Various research tasks of avialinguistics against current aviation needs

Languages of publication



The author presents various research tasks of a new scientific discipline – avialinguistics, called and described by herself earlier (see A.P. Borowska 2017a). This new branch of linguistics deals with various types of aviation texts. Aviation discourse is a specific variety of specialist discourse as common features with other specialist varieties are found to be marginal. The needs of civil aviation increase proportionally to research needs and improving its aspects including aviation communication. The article presents the subject and aims of avialinguistics in order to present its various research tasks with reference to current aviation needs and taking into account the variety of aviation polilects. Aeronautical discourse has been selected as an example for scientific discussion.
