Title: Analyzing Public Disourse
Subtitle: Discourse Analysis in the Making of Public Policy
Written By: Ronald Scollon
Description:

Analyzing Public Discourse demonstrates the use of discourse analysis to
provide testimony in public policy consultations: from environmental impact
statements to changes in laws and policies.

Scollon asserts that it is in the best interest of democratic public
discourse for all participants in the process to be working with a common
discursive framework. He puts forward a strategy by which discourse
analysts can become engaged in this framework as participants through the
process of public consultations. Using documents which are publicly
available online from specific consultative projects, Scollon provides the
reader with concrete examples and introduces basic skills for discourse
analysis.

Accessible to readers who are new to discourse analysis, Analyzing Public
Discourse will be of interest to students of linguistics and language
studies as well as to those on environmental studies courses. This book can
also be used as a guide for any public consultation which calls for public
responses.
