The Handbook of Discourse Analysis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The articles collected in the Handbook of Discourse Analysis comprise a foundational paradigm for discourse that is broad enough to support a variety of approaches, methods, and even definitions, regarding discourse. The volume begins with an overview of discourse analysis, then moves through an examination of theoretical and methodological issues in the field. The book also presents a wide range of empirical studies of discourse as social and linguistic practice. Since many of the articles are interdisciplinary, the book concludes with an exploration of how different disciplines have become interested in discourse. The Handbook of Discourse Analysis makes significant contributions to current research and serves as a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the central issues in contemporary discourse analysis.
