Critical Discourse Analysis: The Critical Study of Language by Norman Fairclough
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book brings together work on critical discourse analysis, organised in four sections. The first examines the development of an analytical framework for researching language in relation to power and ideology. The second section deals with the theme of discourse and contemporary social and culture change. Chapters in the third section mainly address discourse analysis based outside language studies, arguing for the use of textual analysis in discourse analysis as a method of social research. The final section is concerned with critical language awareness, educational applications of critical discourse analysis within language programmes in schools and educational institutions.
