The Routledge Handbook of Discourse Analysis covers the major approaches to Discourse Analysis from Critical Discourse Analysis to Multimodal Discourse Analysis and their applications in key educational and institutional settings. The handbook is divided into six sections: Approaches to Discourse Analysis, Register and Genre, Developments in Spoken Discourse, Educational Applications, Institutional Applications and Identity, Culture and Discourse.

The chapters are written by a wide range of contributors from around the world, each a leading researcher in their respective field. All chapters have been closely edited by James Paul Gee and Michael Handford. With a focus on the application of Discourse Analysis to real-life problems, the contributors introduce the reader to a topic, and analyse authentic data.

The Routledge Handbook of Discourse Analysis is vital reading for linguistics students as well as students of communication and cultural studies, social psychology and anthropology.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This discourse analysis handbook wins hands down as the most intellectually responsible in the field - both in terms of the comprehensiveness of the topics considered and the international spectrum of specialists involved.'

James Martin, University of Sydney, Australia

'The Handbook of Discourse Analysis is accessible to undergraduates and yet a state-of-the-art introduction for graduate students and practicing researchers in a wide range of fields. There are many introductions to or handbooks of Discourse Analysis available today. This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and internationally representative of them all.'

Sarah Michaels, Clark University, USA


'... there is little doubt that the volume will be of use for both students and researchers alike. For those new to DA, the variety of approaches and applications discussed should help the researcher better understand approaches to DA and how they might be useful in specific contexts. Moreover, because of the wide variety of outlooks presented, and the inclusion of remodelled approaches, new research, and arguements for more traditional approaches to be modified, there are likely to be interesting discoveries to be made for even those with a strong background in DA.' - LinguistList
