Gianmarco Vignozzi holds a PhD in English Linguistics from the University of Pisa, Italy, where he teaches English Language and Linguistics in the Department of Law. His areas of specialisation and research interests lie in English for specific purposes (ESP) and corpus linguistics, ranging from political discourse and filmic discourse analysis to corpus stylistics and audio-visual translation.
His latest research works focus on the representation of spoken medical discourse in TV medical dramas and on the potentiality of multimodal stimuli to teach figurative expressions to foreign learners of English.
He published his first monograph with Cambridge Scholars earlier this year. Assessing the Language of TV Political Interviews analyses the most distinctive linguistic features defining the genre of British and American TV-mediated political interviews.
Gianmarco describes his experience of publishing his first academic book with Cambridge Scholars:
“Being a novice academic and deciding to publish a monograph immediately after a PhD could be very tough and chaotic. That is why choosing the right publisher is key to having a successful experience. From the very beginning, after getting in touch with the commissioning editor who provided me with all the essential information––from what should be in the book proposal to the submission of the full manuscript––I felt I was in good hands.
This initial feeling was confirmed by the professionalism, seriousness and celerity with which the proposal was assessed by the advisory board, the manuscript was proofread by the prepress department, and the formatting completed by the typesetting team. The book cover was another thing that I appreciated very much. The fact that the publishing house has its own design team ready to satisfy the author’s requests leaves much space for customisation.
For these reasons, I can say that publishing my first scholarly book with Cambridge Scholars was a wonderful experience that I would not hesitate to recommend to all my colleagues looking for a publisher to take care of their research.”
