A Glossary for Discourse Studies

The fields at the intersection of language, society and communication seem
to have enlarged beyond the ambit of a single theoretical methodology,
necessitating therefore at least a triangulation of approaches even in the
simplest analyses of verbal data. In view of this daunting development in
the numerous disciplines that are generally concerned with interactions
between language, society and communication, the Department of English,
Lagos State University, Nigeria is compiling a study guide (entitled A
Glossary for Discourse Studies) for the benefit of students and researchers
across the globe. We implore scholars, researchers and professionals all
over the world to submit items that may be included in this kind of work.
Such entries should be submitted in a definitional format characteristic of
most dictionaries – although short notes are also welcome. Also, entries
need not be submitters’ original ideas, although we would prefer a little
acknowledgement of source, e.g. Halliday, 1976. All items should be
submitted in Microsoft word format or pdf to englishdeptlasuyahoo.co.uk or
to the editor (adelekefakoyayahoo.com). Fields include: Discourse
Analysis, Conversation Analysis, Interactional Sociolinguistics,
Ethnography of Communication, Pragmatics, Critical Discourse Analysis,
Forensic Discourse Analysis, Speech Act Theory, Discourse Semantics,
Discourse Stylistics, Variation Analysis, Text Linguistics, and other
disciplines that examine the language-society-communication continuum. All
entries will be fully acknowledged.

Call deadline: 30 June 2008
