Deconstructing Arguments in the Digital Age provides a new and practical approach to the critical analysis of persuasive literature such as newspaper editorials, discussion forums and political blogs. Employing corpus linguistic methods and underpinned by Derridean ideas, this book argues that the analysis of texts should look at its cohesive structure - how it ties together through vocabulary and grammar- rather than the conventional approach of looking at its logical structure. This methodology is especially crucial when dealing with Web 2.0 texts as traditional analytic methods are ill equipped to deal with these evolving discourses. O'Halloran also guides the reader through all the necessary tools and software to undertake their own analysis of texts. This book is essential reading for students and researchers with an interest in corpus linguistics, discourse analysis and digital humanities.
