Abstract:

This new and engaging introduction offers a critical approach to discourse,
written by an expert uniquely placed to cover the subject for a variety of
disciplines. Organised along thematic lines, the book begins with an
outline of the basic principles, moving on to examine the methods and
theory of CDA (critical discourse analysis). It covers topics such as text
and context, language and inequality, choice and determination, history and
process, ideology and identity. Blommaert focuses on how language can offer
a crucial understanding of wider aspects of power relations, arguing that
critical discourse analysis should specifically be an analysis of the
'effects' of power, what power does to people, groups and societies, and
how this impact comes about. Clearly argued, this concise introduction will
be welcomed by students and researchers in a variety of disciplines
involved in the study of discourse, including linguistics, linguistic
anthropology and the sociology of language.
