This book brings together contributions from a diverse collection of

textual levels. Both spoken and written discourse are investigated in a
variety of settings, including academia, the workplace, news, and
entertainment. Not only does the volume offer a rich sample of
English-language discourse from around the world­, including international,
learner, and non-standard varieties of English, ­but it also covers a range
of topics and methods. This book will be of particular interest to
researchers and students specializing in discourse studies, English
linguistics, and corpus linguistics.
