9780198299868: Evaluation in Text: Authorial Stance and the Construction of Discourse (Oxford Linguistics)

Long neglected as a focus of linguistic research, evaluation in its various guises is now being recognized as a crucial aspect of any study of discourse. In this book, writers coming from different standpoints are brought together, providing a unique profile of the topic from several perspectives: Systemic Linguistics, Narrative, Corpus Linguistics, and Discourse Analysis.

Review:

... a necessary addition to any research library in which functional linguistics, genre studies, corpus linguistics and narratology already take up a greater proportion of the shelf space. * Discourse Studies * ... the volume has an overall coherence as well as an accessible structure ... a valuable resource. * Discourse Studies *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This is an accessible and wide-ranging account of current research in one of the most central aspects of discourse analysis: evaluation in and of written and spoken language. Evaluation is the broad cover term for the expression of a speaker s - or writer s - attitudes, feelings, and values. It covers areas sometimes referred to as stance , modality , affect , or appraisal . Evaluation (a) expresses the speaker s opinion and thus reflects the value-system of that person and their community; (b) constructs relations between speaker and hearer (or writer and reader); and (c) plays a key role in how discourse is organized. Every act of evaluation expresses and contributes to a communal value-system, which in turn is a component of the ideology that lies behind every written or spoken text. Conceptually, evaluation is comparative, subjective, and value-laden. In linguistic terms it may be analysed lexically, grammatically, and textually. These themes and perspectives are richly exemplified in the chapters of this book, by authors aware and observant of the fact that processes of linguistic analysis are themselves inherently evaluative. The editors open the book by introducing the field and provide separate, contextual introductions to each chapter. They have also collated the references into one list, itself a valuable research guide. The exemplary perspectives and analyses presented by the authors will be of central interest to everyone concerned with the analysis of discourse, whether as students of language, literature, or communication. They also have much to offer students of politics and culture. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780198299868
