Book Description:

This popular introductory textbook is now available in a revised and updated second edition. Assuming no previous background in linguistics, it encourages students to think about discourse analysis as an open-ended set of techniques, carefully balancing the coverage of topics with extensive practical examples. Johnstone considers a variety of approaches to the subject, including critical discourse analysis, conversation analysis, interactional and variationist sociolinguistics, ethnography, corpus linguistics, and other qualitative and quantitative methods. Detailed descriptions of the results of discourse analysts' work are also featured. The second edition of this book retains and expands the useful student features, including discussion questions, exercises, and ideas for small research projects. This combination of breadth of coverage, practical examples, and student-friendly features make Discourse Analysis the ideal textbook for students taking their first course in linguistic approaches to discourse.

From the Back Cover:


Discourse Analysis is an ideal textbook for students taking a first course in linguistic approaches to discourse. It presupposes no previous coursework in linguistics. It is designed to encourage students to think about discourse analysis as an open-ended heuristic, a set of techniques for systematically studying every possible source of the meaning of a sequence of speech or writing.

Chapters cover the complex relationships between discourse and various aspects of context, such as linguistic structure, participants and prior discourse. Discussion questions and ideas for small research projects are interspersed throughout. Each chapter ends with a set of suggested supplementary readings.

Clearly written, accessible, up to date, and comprehensive, Discourse Analysis is useful for teachers and students in many disciplines.
