Abstract

Amongst the varieties of EPP, medical discourse matters for a wide range of reasons as it is a means of communication within scientific communities, a mode of interaction between professionals and patients, and an instrument of popularization of medicine. For its massive presence in electronically-mediated information, medical English more than ever plays an important part in everyday life. As a professional language, it shows peculiar characteristics that renders it a more and more flexible and accessible language.
