How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit is the essential new book from James Paul Gee, bestselling author of An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method. Discourse analysis is widely used in a range of academic subjects, all concerned with how humans make meaning and communicate within and across different social and cultural groups.
Using a practical how-to approach, Gee provides the tools necessary to work with discourse analysis, with engaging step-by-step tasks featured throughout the book. Each tool is clearly explained, along with guidance on how to use it, and authentic data is provided for readers to practice using the tools. Readers from all fields will gain both a practical and theoretical background in how to do discourse analysis and knowledge of discourse analysis as a distinctive research methodology.
How to do Discourse Analysis: a Toolkit is the ideal preparation for future learning in discourse analysis and applied linguistics. It is the companion text to Gee’s An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method, meant for those interested in learning discourse analysis by doing it. The interdisciplinary approach means that it is suitable for students across a range of subjects, including Applied Linguistics, Anthropology, and Communication Studies.

His many titles include An Introduction to Discourse Analysis (second edition 2005), Sociolinguistics and Literacies (third edition 2007) and Situated Language and Learning (2004), all published by Routledge.Review:
"This is without a doubt the most accessible and user-friendly book on discourse analysis to come along for many years. It is an ideal companion to Gee’s previous book, An Introduction to Discourse Analysis, and will make for an ideal textbook in a wide range of undergraduate courses in language, linguistics and English studies."
Rodney Jones, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
"As an ideal companion to An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method, How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit is more hands-on in its approach to understanding and applying discourse analysis in research, teaching, and learning. It is a pleasure to read Gee’s simple, clear, humor-injected prose. Part of his brilliance derives from not only making theory accessible, but also anchoring discourse in authentic contexts. The book is essential reading for students and scholars exploring the nuances of language."
Jennifer Rowsell, Rutgers Graduate School of Education, USA
