Message 1: Discourse Analysis Chapter for Textbook

Date: Mon, 21 Oct 2002 12:46:46 +0200
From: Stekauer <>
Subject: Discourse Analysis Chapter for Textbook

Dear colleagues:

I am an editor of the second volume of a university textbook called
Rudiments of English Linguistics. Each chapter will be written by an
expert in the respective field. The authors come from various
countries. There is still one chapter, however, for which I have not
succeeded in finding an author: DISCOURSE ANALYSIS. Each chapter
should have 20-25 pages and is supposed to present the basic
terminology, fundamental theories, etc. The preliminary deadline
(still negotiable) for submitting a manuscript is end of March 2003.
Unfortunately, given the economic situation of our university no
remuneration is available.

If you are an expert in the field of DISCOURSE ANALYSIS and feel like 
contributing to the Rudiments please let me know as soon as possible. 
Thank you in advance.

Yours sincerely

Professor Pavol Astekauer
