A Beginner's Guide to Discourse Analysis Summary


A Beginner's Guide to Discourse Analysis by Sean Sutherland

This practical textbook introduces students to a range of tools and techniques used in discourse analysis. The perfect starting point for those new to the field, it explores a wide range of fundamental concepts in discourse analysis, including sociolinguistic variables that affect language use, register, cohesion and coherence, discourse markers and Grice's maxims. Excerpts from novels, songs, newspaper articles and spoken conversations illustrate key concepts and enrich students' understanding of the subject.

This introductory guide is an invaluable resource for undergraduates studying discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and applied linguistics modules or courses. It is also ideal for students of related disciplines which entail an understanding of discourse analysis, such as communication studies, sociology, anthropology, management and psychology.

A Beginner's Guide to Discourse Analysis Reviews


'In this beautifully exemplified and neatly-structured work, Sutherland guides readers through the various ways of thinking about language in use. A must-read for students, scholars and practitioners with an interest in text and discourse analysis.' Sofia Lampropoulou, University of Liverpool, UK 'Pitched in a way beginning linguists can understand, Sutherland explains and provides an overview of central issues in discourse analysis. Written in a clear, lively style it introduces a breadth of key concepts and topics, including up-to-date examples. An accessible and engaging introduction.' Urszula Clark, Aston University, Birmingham, UK 'Finally a textbook on Discourse Analysis that really targets UG beginners who might have no background in the field. This is a great little book, lecturer and student friendly, very flexible and adaptable to different ways of structuring a course. I will adopt it as one of my main textbooks, I will recommend it for a first year UG module on language and also across the English programme.' Arianna Maiorani, Lougborough University, UK
