Abstract:

The Power of Language: How Discourse Influences Society is designed to
introduce students at the tertiary level to both Systemic Functional
Linguistics and Critical Discourse Analysis. It is aimed at developing critical
analytical skills by rooting analysis in SFL methodology so that students can
tackle a wide range of discourse types. By connecting SFL and CDA and by
explicitly introducing a solid theoretical foundation in SFL, the critical
analyses in the book are not only well grounded but transparent. Each
chapter in the volume builds a methodological foundation for the
development of critical discourse analytical skills. SFL provides novice
analysts with a rich set of resources for CDA and equips them to better
reflect on what language is doing and why.

The Power of Language: How Discourse Influences Society, offers
explanations along with a wide range of sample analyses to illustrate theory
and provide applications of the methodologies introduced in each chapter.
Students not only learn by studying a number of analyses but carry out their
own analytical work on other samples, thus gaining experience in critical
analysis. Each chapter also includes examples of analyses by well known
researchers so that novice analysts become familiar with various
approaches to analysis.
