Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit
Written By: James Paul Gee
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415572088/
Description:

How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit is the essential new book from
James Paul Gee, bestselling author of An Introduction to Discourse Analysis:
Theory and Method. Discourse analysis is widely used in a range of
academic subjects, all concerned with how humans make meaning and
communicate within and across different social and cultural groups.

Using a practical how-to approach, Gee provides the tools necessary to work
with discourse analysis, with engaging step-by-step tasks featured throughout
the book. Each tool is clearly explained, along with guidance on how to use it,
and authentic data is provided for readers to practice using the tools. Readers
from all fields will gain both a practical and theoretical background in how to
do discourse analysis and knowledge of discourse analysis as a distinctive
research methodology.

How to do Discourse Analysis: a Toolkit is the ideal preparation for future
learning in discourse analysis and applied linguistics. It is the companion text
to Gee's An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method, meant
for those interested in learning discourse analysis by doing it. The
interdisciplinary approach means that it is suitable for students across a
range of subjects, including Applied Linguistics, Anthropology, and
Communication Studies.
