It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: The Handbook of Discourse Analysis
Edited By: Heidi E Hamilton
Deborah Tannen
Deborah Schiffrin

The articles collected in the Handbook of Discourse Analysis comprise a foundational paradigm for discourse that is broad enough to support a variety of approaches, methods, and even definitions, regarding discourse. The volume begins with an overview of discourse analysis, then moves through an examination of theoretical and methodological issues in the field. The book also presents a wide range of empirical studies of discourse as social and linguistic practice. Since many of the articles are interdisciplinary, the book concludes with an exploration of how different disciplines have become interested in discourse.
The Handbook of Discourse Analysis makes significant contributions to current research and serves as a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the central issues in contemporary discourse analysis.
