Discourse Analysis
Barbara Johnstone, Carnegie Mellon University

Discourse Analysis is an ideal textbook for students taking a first
course in linguistic approaches to discourse. It presupposes no
previous coursework in linguistics. It is designed to encourage
students to think about discourse analysis as an open-ended heuristic,
a set of techniques for systematically studying every possible source
of the meaning of a sequence of speech or writing. 
Chapters cover the complex relationships between discourse and various
aspects of context, such as linguistic structure, participants and
prior discourse. Discussion questions and ideas for small research
projects are interspersed throughout. Each chapter ends with a set of
suggested supplementary readings. Clearly written, accessible, up to
date, and comprehensive, Discourse Analysis is useful for teachers and
students in many disciplines.
