Review:

A scholarly and ambitious work, which attempts to integrate insights from many theoretical positions on discourse - all the gurus are there ...The reader activities should be of considerable interest to all teachers and students in the field of discourse studies. The texts are immensely diverse, ranging from plot summaries to NYPD Blue, to excerpts from books by Stephen Hawking and Peter Hoeg, to comments by Sviatoslav Richter. -- Jenny Miller, University of Queensland Characterised by in-depth discussions of theoretical issues, accompanied by profound practical analyses of authentic data ... a guide to the analysis of narrative and non-narrative authentic texts that combines a structure-oriented and a function-oriented viewpoint. -- Wolfram Bublitz, University of Augsburg A scholarly and ambitious work, which attempts to integrate insights from many theoretical positions on discourse - all the gurus are there ...The reader activities should be of considerable interest to all teachers and students in the field of discourse studies.
