Title: Advances in Discourse Approaches
Edited By: Marta Dynel
Description:

Please Note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

Taboo words, Quentin Tarantino’s films, humorous dialogues from “Sex and
the City”, witty advertising slogans, the Bible, Barack Obama’s speeches,
or legal discourse are only a few of the topics addressed in the volume.

The study of discourse is a diversified and fast-developing field of
language research, embracing methodological proposals, discourse analyses,
comparative research, translation studies and teaching perspectives. Within
each of the approaches, theoretical frameworks and postulates abound. The
list of research topics is inexhaustible, especially that each year brings
new real-life material subject to analysis and issues to elaborate.

Each chapter is devoted to a different topic and deploys a separate
theoretical framework. The diversity of research data, methodologies and
theoretical viewpoints guarantees the volume’s being a representative
sample of multifarious developments in discourse approaches. The book
should thus be an interesting resource for enterprising researchers and
students of linguistics.
