Methods of Text and Discourse Analysis provides the most comprehensive overview currently available of linguistic and sociological approaches to text and discourse analysis.
Among the 10 linguistic and sociological models surveyed in this book some of the more important are Grounded Theory, Content Analysis, Conversation Analysis and Critical Discourse Analysis. The book presents each approach according to a standardised format, which allows for direct systematic comparisons. The fully annotated lists of sources provide readers with an additional means of evaluation of the competing analytical methods. Interdisciplinary and international in its aim, Methods of Text and Discourse Analysis suggests the benefits both linguists and sociologists will derive from a more intimate knowledge of each others' methods and procedures. By enabling readers to compare, contrast and apply a range of methods and approaches this book will be an essential resource for both students and researchers.
Essential reading for all of those doing qualitative research projects from a critical perspective. Provides an overall introduction to text and discourse analysis and supplements the theory with practical guidance. Helpful at every level (Under and PostGraduate Levels)
An excellent book which has, and continues to be of great help with my students. The text provides the reader with a good understanding of the different applications of text and discourse analysis and is well written and presented throughout.
