Abstract:

Discourse analysis considers how language, both spoken and written, enacts
social and cultural perspectives and identities. In this book, James Paul
Gee introduces the field and presents his unique integrated approach to it.

Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, the author presents both a
theory of language-in-use and a method of research. Clearly structured and
written in a highly accessible style, An Introduction to Discourse Analysis
incorporates perspectives from a variety of approaches and disciplines,
including applied linguistics, education, psychology, anthropology and
communication to help students and scholars from a range of backgrounds to
formulate their own views on discourse and engage in their own discourse
analysis.

The second edition has been completely revised and updated and contains
substantial new material and examples of oral and written language, ranging
from group discussions with children, adults, students and teachers to
conversations, interviews, academic texts and policy documents.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
