This latest release in the Routledge Handbook in Applied Linguistics series,
covers the major approaches to Discourse Analysis from Critical Discourse
Analysis to Multimodal Discourse Analysis and their applications in key
educational and institutional settings. The Routledge Handbook of Discourse
Analysis is divided into six sections: Approaches to Discourse Analysis,
Approaches to Spoken Discourse, Genres and Practices, Educational
Applications, Institutional Applications, and Identity, Culture and Discourse.
The chapters are written by a wide range of contributors from around the
world, each a leading researcher in their respective field. All chapters have
been closely edited by James Paul Gee and Michael Handford. With a focus
on the application of Discourse Analysis to real-life problems, the contributors
introduce the reader to a topic, and analyse authentic data.
The Handbook is vital reading for linguistics students as well as students of
communication and cultural studies, social psychology and anthropology.
