The Handbook of Discourse Analysis, Paperback

The Handbook of Discourse Analysis Paperback

Edited by Deborah Schiffrin, Deborah Tannen, Heidi E. Hamilton

Part of the Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics series


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.
