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: Textual Interaction : An Introduction to Written Discourse Analysis
Written By: Michael Hoey

Widely encompassing in its examples and comprehensive in its heoretical coverage, this important book is full of insight, offers clear methodology, puts a coherent new position on text, and is, throughout, written in a most engaging manner' - Gunther Kress, Institute of Education, University of London. Textual Interaction' provides a clear and cogent account of written discourse analysis. Each chapter introduces key concepts and analytical techniques, describes important parallel work and major issues, and suggests how to apply the ideas to the teaching and learning of reading and writing. In this activity-based book, Hoey analyses a wide variety of narrative texts and argues that, in the interaction between writer and reader, the reader has as much power as the writer.
