A clear and lively introduction to the latest trends in the theory, method and tools of discourse studies, this new textbook provides a solid grounding to the linguistic mechanisms of discourse, familiarising the reader with the linguistic construction of different text-types and the ways in which they can be analysed. Comprehensive and accessible, the emphasis throughout the book is on practical text analysis and each chapter includes guided activities for self-study or classroom use.
