Discourse Analysis: An Introduction is a comprehensive, accessible introduction to discourse analysis. In a series of nine chapters the book examines different approaches to discourse, looking at discourse and society, discourse and pragmatics, discourse and genre, discourse and conversation, discourse grammar, corpus-based approaches to discourse and critical discourse analysis. The final chapter presents a practical approach to doing discourse analysis. The book includes the following features:


-          Chapter summaries outlining the key areas covered.


-          Examples drawn from films, television, newspapers, the classroom and everyday life


-          Explanations of technical terms in each chapter


-          Tasks at the end of each chapter


-          Suggestions for further reading


This engagingly written, comprehensive introduction to discourse analysis is essential for students encountering discourse analysis for the first time, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level. It should be on every reading list.
