The Handbook of Discourse Analysis
Edited by Deborah Schiffrin, Deborah Tannen, and Heidi E. Hamilton
All Georgetown University

The articles collected in the Handbook of Discourse Analysis comprise
a foundational paradigm for discourse that is broad enough to support
a variety of approaches, methods, and even definitions, regarding
discourse. The volume begins with an overview of discourse analysis,
then moves through an examination of theoretical and methodological
issues in the field. The book also presents a wide range of empirical
studies of discourse as social and linguistic practice. Since many of
the articles are interdisciplinary, the book concludes with an
exploration of how different disciplines have become interested in
The Handbook of Discourse Analysis makes significant contributions to
current research and serves as a comprehensive and authoritative guide
to the central issues in contemporary discourse analysis.
