An essential reference to contemporary discourse studies, this handbook offers a rigorous and systematic overview of the field, covering the key methods, research topics and new directions. Fully updated and revised throughout to take account of developments over the last decade, in particular the innovations in digital communication and new media, this second edition features:

· New coverage of the discourse of media, multimedia, social media, politeness, ageing and English as lingua franca

· Updated coverage across all chapters, including conversation analysis, spoken discourse, news discourse, intercultural communication, computer mediated communication and identity

· An expanded glossary of key terms

Identifying and describing the central concepts and theories associated with discourse and its main branches of study, "The Bloomsbury Handbook of Discourse Analysis" makes a sustained and compelling argument concerning the nature and influence of discourse and is an essential resource for anyone interested in the field.
