Abstract:

Analyzing Discourse is an introduction to discourse analysis for
linguistic field workers. It is practical, addressing issues commonly
confronted by field linguists. Rather than applying a rigid theory or
surveying a variety of approaches, it provides a methodology that has
been refined over years of use. The material follows a functional and
cognitive approach that seems to be a good approximation of how
discourse is actually produced and understood.

Since the aim of the manual is introductory rather than
comprehensive, most chapters are relatively short, and the whole can
be covered in fifteen classroom hours. References are provided for
further reading on the topics discussed. The manual can be used
individually or in group sessions, such as in a formal course or a
linguistic seminar. In a group setting, concepts can be illustrated by
examining further texts than those provided in the manual.

Stephen H. Levinsohn, Ph.D., worked with the Inga (Quechuan) people of
Colombia from 1968 to 1997 in linguistic research and translation. He
is presently an International Linguistics Consultant with SIL
International.

Robert A. Dooley, Ph.D., has worked with the Mbya Guarani of southern
Brazil since 1975. He served as director of the Summer Institute of
Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session, from 1988 to 1993.
