(Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science 16.2)

The Handbook assumes the bilateral division of linguistic academic
communication matter in both text and conversation and differentiates
between the linguistics of texts (first volume) and the linguistics of
conversation (second volume). The two volumes are arranged in a way
that they correspond to each other in their overall composition. The
intention thereby is to give prominence to the connections between
written-monologic and spoken-dialogic communication - despite all
dissimilarities between the two - and to faciliate the orientation of
the handbook user.

The main goals of the handbook are to represent recent international
research as well as the historical development of research on this
complex subject, to explain the basis of both textual and
conversational methods of analysis, to analyze the crucial aspects of
the constitution and typology of texts and conversations, as well as
to present the dialogue between textual and conversational linguistics
with other disciplines and specific areas of practice.

The handbook is not only aimed at language specialists, but rather at
all who, in their academic or practical function, are involved with
the difficulties of textual and conversational linguistic
constitution, e.g. scholars of literature, philosophers, theologians,
historians, psychologists, sociologists, pedagogues, lecturers,
translators, etc.
