Synopsis:

This workbook will be invaluable for students across the social sciences who need to learn how to analyze discourse. Using a step-by-step approach, students are introduced to the principal range of methods for analyzing different types of text, taken through key analytic concepts, offered specimen analyses and given the opportunity to try out analytic concepts on new data.

Discourse as Data is organized around eight chapters, six of which are related to the domains covered in the Reader, and top and tailed by two chapters which set up common methodological issues in discourse research relevant to all approaches (such as transcription and the application and the critical evaluation of discourse research).

Synopsis:

Discourse as Data is organized around eight chapters, six of which are related to the domains covered in the Reader, Discourse Theory and Practice and top and tailed by two chapters which set up common methodological issues in discourse research relevant to all approaches.

Though the text will be a perfect companion to the simultaneously published Reader, its broad coverage, combined with didactic, practical guidance should make this a useful stand-alone text.
