Book Information


Title: Multimodal Transcription and Text Analysis
Written By: Anthony Baldry
Paul J. Thibault
Series Title: Equinox Textbooks and Surveys in Linguistics

What are multimodal texts? How can we transcribe and analyse them? How can
multimedia and internet help us in multimodal discourse analysis? What
postproduction and authoring skills are needed to analyse a multimodal text
or to develop a corpus of multimodal texts? How does integrating multimedia
meaning-making resources into hypertext multiply our meaning-making
potential? How does the study of language relate to multimodality and
multimedia, in particular in the e-learning age? How, and to what extent,
will multimodal discourse analysis re-shape linguistics?

In its attempt to provide answers to the questions raised above, and many
others, this book proposes concrete solutions to the problems of multimodal
text analysis and transcription of printed texts, websites and film. As
such, it constitutes a much needed course in multimodal text transcription
and analysis. It also suggests ways in which multimodal discourse analysis
can help both educators and students understand how meaning is made in the
e-learning environments that now play such an important role in our lives.
In both these respects, readers are encouraged to use the book in
conjunction with an associated and freely accessible website which provides
many illustrations and exercises that further contextualise and exemplify
the insights and descriptions provided by the book. As befits a coursebook,
the individual chapters of the book are carefully organised in such a way
as to provide a step-by-step progression in theoretical and descriptive
