Book Information


Title: Critical Discourse Studies in Context and Cognition
Edited By: Christopher Hart
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 43

Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) is an exciting research enterprise in which
scholars are concerned with the discursive reproduction of power and inequality.
However, researchers in CDS are increasingly recognising the need to
investigate the cognitive dimensions of discourse and context if they want to
fully account for any connection between language, legitimisation and social
action. This book presents a collection of papers in CDS concerned with various
ideological discourses. Analyses are firmly rooted in linguistics and cognition
constitutes a major focus of attention. The chapters, which are written by
prominent researchers in CDS, come from a broad range of theoretical
perspectives spanning pragmatics, cognitive psychology and cognitive
linguistics. The book is essential reading for anyone working at the cutting edge
of CDS and especially for those wishing to explore the central place that
cognition must surely hold in the relationship between discourse and society.
