Abstract:

This book brings together cutting-edge research on multimodal texts
and the 'discourses' generated through the interaction of two or more
semiotic modes of communication; for example language, dynamic and
static visual images, architecture and three-dimensional objects. This
includes the study of transition and phase, camera and body movement,
typography and how such choices orientate the viewer to particular
readings of the text and context.

The contributors collected within this volume use the systemic
functional approach to present frameworks, which are used to analyze
how meaning is generated within a series of case studies. The result
is a comprehensive survey of the ways in which enhanced meaning
emerges through the interaction of more than one mode of
communication.

Multimodal Discourse Analysis will be useful to researchers interested
in the application of systemic functional linguistics to media
studies, discourse analysis and coginitive linguistics.
