Publisher Comments:

Originally published as The Continuum Companion to Discourse Analysis, this book is designed to be the essential one-volume resource for advanced students and academics.



This companion offers a comprehensive and accessible reference resource to research in contemporary discourse studies. In 21 chapters written by leading figures in the field, the volume provides readers with an authoritative overview of key terms, methods and current research topics and directions. It offers both a survey of current research and gives more practical guidance for advanced study in the area.



The volume covers all the most important issues, concepts, movements and approaches in the field and features a glossary of key terms in the area of discourse
analysis. It is the complete resource for postgraduate students and researchers working within discourse studies, applied linguistics, TESOL and the social sciences.

Book News Annotation:

Linguists in several language traditions present a reference for students and scholars just entering discourse analysis, an area of applied linguistics that studies texts in relation to the social contexts in which they are used. Their topics include data collection and transcription, conversation analysis, ethnography, corpus approaches to the study of discourse, academic discourse, the news, forensic discourse analysis, discourse and race, intercultural communication, and medical discourse.
