Abstract:

Discourse, of Course comes after Jan Renkema's Introduction to
Discourse Studies
(2004) for undergraduates. The new book is a
collection of twenty short papers. It is a capita selecta course
and meant for graduate programs. The aim of this book is threefold:

- to present material for advanced courses in discourse studies;
- to unfold a stimulating display of research projects to future PhD students;
- to give an overview of new developments after the 2004 Introduction
to Discourse Studies
.

This publication fulfills both the teacher's need for a state-of-the-art
overview of the main topics in discourse, and the student's need to acquire
standards for developing research plans in theses and dissertations. It
gives a combination of approaches from very different schools in discourse
studies, ranging from argumentation theory to genre theory, from the study
of multimodal metaphors to cognitive approaches to coherence analysis. This
book is not only meant to serve as a textbook, but also as a reference book
for researchers who want an update for various main topics in the field.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
