Title: An Introduction to Discourse Analysis
Subtitle: Theory and Method, 3rd Edition
Written By: James Paul Gee
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415585705/
Description:

New Edition

Discourse analysis considers how language, both spoken and written, enacts
social and cultural perspectives and identities. Assuming no prior knowledge
of linguistics, An Introduction to Discourse Analysis examines the field and
presents James Paul Gee's unique integrated approach which incorporates
both a theory of language-in-use and a method of research.

The third edition of this bestselling text has been extensively revised and
updated to include new material such as examples of oral and written
language, ranging from group discussions with children, adults, students and
teachers to conversations, interviews, academic texts and policy documents.
While it can be used as a stand-alone text, this edition has also been fully
cross-referenced with the practical companion title How to do Discourse
Analysis: a Toolkit and together they provide the complete resource for
students with an interest in this area.

Clearly structured and written in a highly accessible style, An Introduction to
Discourse Analysis includes perspectives from a variety of approaches and
disciplines, including applied linguistics, education, psychology, anthropology
and communication to help students and scholars from a range of
backgrounds to formulate their own views on discourse and engage in their
own discourse analysis
