Abstract:

Phasal Analysis introduces students to discourse and textual analyses
through Gregory and Malcolm's communication linguistics and its descriptive
methodology: phasal analysis. Once readers have mastered five preliminary
forms of analyses, the book teaches how to combine and correlate your
findings in order to capture the spontaneous and dynamic evolution of the
text: how to compile, contextualize and communicate the intricacies of
language analysis.

Students new to textual analysis will appreciate the clarity of the
definitions and explanations in the book and the on-line exercise and
answer key that goes with each chapter and form of analysis. Advanced
students of discourse analysis will appreciate the suggestions for
recording, contextualizing, summarizing and interpreting their findings.
Phasal analysis has proven invaluable in several areas of linguistic
application: forensic linguistics, register and genre studies, narrative
and discourse structure and stylistics. The framework can be used in all
types of textual and discourse analysis. It gives an in-depth understanding
of how language works and adjusts to reflect the constant fluctuations of
the interlocutors' relationships in the communicative situation and culture.

"Karen Malcolm's Phasal Analysis provides an explicit how-to manual for
linguistic discourse analysis, rich in worked examples, by a founder of one
of its key methods and an important contributor to Communication
Linguistics. An essential tool for analyzing verbal data in all fields."
Professor Jay Lemke, School of Education, University of Michigan, USA
