Professional discourse is generally defined as the language, written, spoken, or visual, used by professionals with specialist training to achieve a variety of functions in the professional workplace (Kong, 2014). As Halliday (1975) notes, function plays an important role in shaping the language used in different situations. Different linguistic features and strategies are, therefore, adopted to perform and realise the functions in different professional settings.
