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 in the realm of
material lived-in space, electronic media, film and print. This includes
the study of transition and phase, camera and body movement, typography,
layout and the use of colour, 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.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment
to check if your company operates such a program.
