Includes a varied range of theoretical models, such as relevance theory and systemic-functional linguistics; and methodology, including interpretive, statistical, and formal methodsFeatures comprehensive coverage of contemporary discourse analysis. Reviews "The volume is intended as, and succeeds in being, both an authoritative guide to the field and a contribution to current research" Forum for Modern Language Studies, Vol 39, " T he handbook with be a valuable source of information and inspiration for further research in discourse analysis in the context of modern language studies and in linguistics in general.
Free Access. Edwards discusses a range of issues including appropriate formats, the marking of pauses, prosody and turn-taking, and available software she includes a number of useful website addresses. Chafe provides a good sample analysis, combined with practical observations on how to identify a topic, and the utility and ontological status of a text as opposed to the string of intonation units on which it is based.
It is a pity that this chapter did not appear more prominently and appropriately in part I or II. It is also unfortunate that there was not an additional, complementary chapter dealing with text charting, and with the glossing and interlinearisation of texts in languages other than the language of description usually English.
While this might be considered the typical activity of discourse analysts, a number of chapters present analyses based on the analysis of large corpora. They also provide clear definitions of coherence and cohesion which supplement those provided by Stubbs, and make a very strong case for the importance of discourse analysis to communicative language teaching.
A welcome feature of this chapter is that it considers oral and literate registers in Korean and Somali as well as in English. It also demonstrates how cross-linguistic comparison is possible using multidimensional analyses, in which language-specific linguistic features which distinguish registers are identified and then used for cross-linguistic comparison.
For a start, typologists rely heavily on reference grammars, which typically contain little in the way of discourse analysis , and where discourse phenomena are included the variety of terminology used makes comparisons difficult to make. The variationist approach which they illustrate takes into account four general principles: Apart from the use of a corpus, the activity of linking discourse functions with syntactic constructions is one which would commonly be associated with the field of pragmatics.
There are a number of other chapters in which the close relation between discourse analysis and pragmatics is particularly evident, and it is to these that I turn next. Norrick provides a tour-de-force of historical detail which purports to reveal a shift in semantic studies from truth-conditional to discourse- oriented approaches Despite his use of naturally occurring data, however, the concern with process specifically cognitive processing over product is typical of a pragmatic rather than a discourse-oriented approach, particularly in cognitively-based theories such as relevance theory.
In other words, it is the notion of coherence that is derivative In the light of the volume under review, however, this view is decidedly outdated.
Perhaps tellingly, the only naturally occurring non-fabricated example in the chapter is one in which the identification of a coherence relation in this case, exemplification is necessary for the recovery of adequate contextual effects.
For example, there was no single account of conversation analysis viewed either as a sub-discipline within discourse analysis or as an alternative approach , and the few contributors who mentioned conversation analysis assumed familiarity with it. In addition, given that discourse analysis was conceived of widely enough to include the study of oral and written narratives in addition to conversations, there was scant reference to text linguistics, which also goes by the name of discourse analysis e.
Studies in this area have revealed a number of cross-linguistic discourse-related features worthy of mention, such as typical ways of introducing new participants into a discourse, less explicit reference to major participants as opposed to minor participants and props, and so forth.
In summary, the volume as a whole is less coherent than I was expecting, and the quality of the contributions varies considerably. There is also more emphasis on theoretical than on practical considerations, and this is reflected in the lack of sample data analyses. Analyzing discourse: An approach to discourse.
