Textual Interaction Summary


Textual Interaction: An Introduction to Written Discourse Analysis by Michael Hoey

Textual Interaction provides a clear and cogent account of written discourse analysis. Each chapter introduces key concepts and analytical techniques, describes important parallel work and major issues, and suggests how to apply the ideas to the teaching and learning of reading and writing. In this activity-based book, Hoey analyses a wide variety of narrative texts and argues that, in the interaction between writer and reader, the reader has as much power as the writer.
