Each book in the series guides readers through three main sections, enabling them to explore and develop major themes within the discipline.Section A, Introduction, establishes the key terms and concepts and extends readers' techniques of analysis through practical application. Section B, Extension, brings together influential articles, sets them in context, and discusses their contribution to the field. Section C, Exploration, builds on knowledge gained in the first two sections, setting thoughtful tasks around further illustrative material. This enables readers to engage more actively with the subject matter and encourages them to develop their own research responses.

"The book is well-structured and reader-friendly thanks to its clear and cohesive
overall organization...In sum, the resource book suggests a path one may follow to investigate language as social action and offers suggestions for further studies. It represents an outstanding proposal to bridge the gap among different disciplines and theories having them to intersect and interact on naturally occurring data. " Linguist List, May 2009
'This book provides an excellent, comprehensive resource for teaching degree programmes in the fields of language, social interaction and human communication. The discussion is always extremely clear and there is a very broad coverage of relevant issues, approaches and methodologies. The discussion is complemented by a range of readings, data, exercises and tasks, making the book also very suitable for self-study.' - Paul Seedhouse, Newcastle University, UK
