This book offers an easily accessible specific methodology for describing the nuances of spoken and written texts, of any length, in meaning and manageable ways. "Phasal Analysis" is a book that offers an approach to discourse analysis for both linguists and non-linguistics. If offers an easily accessible specific methodology for describing the nuances of spoken and written texts, of any length, in meaning and manageable ways. It demonstrates, in eight clearly structured chapters, how to compile, contextualize and communicate the intricacies of a language analysis. Based around the communication linguistics framework developed with Michael Gregory, Karen Malcolm's book functions as an introduction to the description process that has come to be known as phasal analysis. The process is a method of capturing the way meanings are made and communicated, relationships are established and maintained and ideologies are supported and challenged. Featuring a wealth of student exercises and sample texts, this book is firmly pedagogic. "Phasal Analysis" reveals the innate structuring principles encoded in language, and will enable students from a range of disciplines, from linguistics to language studies to creative writing, to communicate on the message and purpose of the discourse under analysis.
