Working with Discourse: Meaning Beyond the Clause

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Academic, 2003 M05 27 - 293 pages
This book is for researchers and students interested in exploring how speakers and writers construe meaning through discourse. It draws on tools for discourse analysis developed in systemic functional linguistics and register and genre theory but requires no prior knowledge of functional linguistics, avoiding academic complexity wherever possible. Rather it builds a highly accessible set of analytic tools that can be used with ease by workers from a range of disciplines, including educational research, critical discourse analysis, cultural studies, text linguistics and language and literacy teaching.
