This book provides a concise, comprehensible, and thoroughly up-to-date introduction to CDA, appropriate for both novice and experienced researchers. This new edition has been updated throughout, with a new introduction contextualizing the development of the CDA approach, and two entirely new chapters on the ′social actor approach′ to CDA and the use of quantitative corpus linguistic methods. The editors have brought together contributions from leading experts in the field, who each introduce their own approaches to CDA. Examples are included throughout, demonstrating the value of the method in analyzing a variety of genres of written material on a whole range of topics, including global warming, leadership in management, and globalization.

Review:

The greatest value of Methods of Critical Discourse Analysis is its ability to present CDA in a concise and introductory way. In this volume, readers will find a fair presentation of CDA’s agenda, shared goals and the diversity which characterizes this field of research. It is recommended reading for CDA beginners, for those researchers from different fields of humanities or social political fields who want to get a fix on the school so they know what they will adhere to if they choose to adopt a CDA perspective in their research, as well as for experienced CDA researchers, always interested in the latest developments of this ever evolving and exciting school
