Abstract: semantic prosody in business english in the research discussed here, i examined a number of words taken from my 1 million word business english corpus (bec) to see if they displayed semantic prosody and if they did, what kind.
semantic prosody is a term first mentioned by louw (1993) and means simply that words as well has having typical collocates, e.g.
of the 70 words or phrases under analysis, 67 of them displayed semantic prosody to a greater or lesser extent.
stubbs also gives an example of positive semantic prosody - provide -which has amongst its typical collocates words such as care, food, help, jobs, relief and support.
the second finding was that semantic prosody shows that the collocates of words become more fixed in the business english environment when compared to their use in general english.
