Abstract:

Please Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text.

Coherence and Cohesion in Spoken and Written Discourse provides new
insights into the various ways coherence works in a wide spread of spoken
and written text types and interactional situations, all of which point to
the dynamics and subjectivity of its nature. Despite the variety of
approaches the authors adopt, they share an understanding of language as a
dynamic and heterogeneous system mediating interaction in social and
cultural contexts and explain how coherence and cohesion are reflected in
different contextually bound aspects of human communication.

The chapters of the book comprise essays by linguists working in the fields
of pragmatics, discourse analysis and stylistics which explore features
contributing to the perception of cohesion and coherence in spoken and
written varieties of English, namely impromptu, academic and political
discourse within the former variety, and media, academic and fictional
discourse within the latter.

This volume, which combines theoretical insights with practical analyses of
different varieties of spoken and written English discourse, will be of
interest to a wide range of researchers, scholars and students of English.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
                            Ling & Literature
