Abstract:

For anyone approaching discourse analysis for the first time, theory means
little when it is not related to actual knowledge and experience of
language in use. "Describing Discourse" takes the unique approach of
introducing discourse studies through the hands-on analysis of linguistic data.

The book introduces students to specific discourses constructed for
particular purposes, for example, from the domains of advertising, law,
medicine and education. Each chapter provides examples, exercises and
commentary designed to develop the analytical abilities needed in
describing the characteristic forms and typical functions of different
discourses. At the end of each chapter relevant theoretical approaches
(including conversation analysis, enthnology, relevance theory and
audience-design) are introduced in relation to the data just analysed.

In this way, "Describing Discourse" provides the ideal entry into the study
of discourse for students new to the subject.
