About this title


The Discourse Reader collects in one volume the most important and influential articles on discourse analysis. Designed as a structured sourcebook and divided into clear sections, the book covers the foundations of modern discourse analysis and represents all of its contemporary methods and traditions. 

The second edition:

  • has been revised and updated throughout
  • includes six new articles from authors including Teun A. van Dijk, Judith Butler and Gillian Rose
  • includes 'discussion points' to help readers engage with key issues
  • covers the foundations of modern discourse analysis and represents all of its contemporary methods and traditions.

The second edition of The Discourse Reader remains an essential resource for all students of discourse analysis.


"[T]he most comprehensive interdisciplinary one-volume set of readings on discourse that is available today. Jaworski and Coupland have succeeded in combining their broad coverage with a clear focus on the social nature of discourse." -Jef Verschueren, International Pragmatics Association "'Finally we have it. This book belongs on the shelf of everyone with an interest in discourse from beginning student to seasoned researcher.' Ron Scollon, Georgetown University, USA."

Store Description

Shadow Books sells all manner of second-hand, out of print and rare books; but not popular paperback fiction. If we have a speciality, it is a broad academic one embracing the humanities fields of history, politics, classic literature, art history, media, history of ideas. We pride ourselves on setting our prices - quality for quality - at the low end of the range, on the scrupulous way we describe our books, on the rapidity with which we dispatch orders, and on our prompt and friendly response to customers and their queries.
