Written by a leading researcher in the field, this fascinating examination of the relations between grammar, text, and discourse is designed to provoke critical discussion on key issues in discourse analysis which are not always clearly identified and examined.
  • Written by a leading researcher in the field
  • Continues the enquiry into discourse analysis that Zellig Harris initiated 50 years ago, which raised a number of problematic issues that have remained unresolved ever since
  • Introduces the notion of pretext as an additional factor in the general interpretative process
  • Focuses attention specifically on the work of critical discourse analysis (CDA) in light of the issues discussed
  • Keywords: LANGUAGE ARTS & DISCIPLINES / Linguistics LAN009000
