A Beginner's Guide to Discourse Analysis (Paperback)Sean Sutherland (author)
- We can order this
This practical textbook introduces students to a range of tools and techniques used in discourse analysis. The perfect starting point for those new to the field, it explores a wide range of fundamental concepts in discourse analysis, including sociolinguistic variables that affect language use, register, cohesion and coherence, discourse markers and Grice's maxims. Excerpts from novels, songs, newspaper articles and spoken conversations illustrate key concepts and enrich students' understanding of the subject.
This introductory guide is an invaluable resource for undergraduates studying discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and applied linguistics modules or courses. It is also ideal for students of related disciplines which entail an understanding of discourse analysis, such as communication studies, sociology, anthropology, management and psychology.
