Introducing Discourse Analysis – From Grammar to Society
Author: Gee James Paul
Introducing Discourse Analysis: From Grammar to Society is a concise and accessible introduction by bestselling author, James Paul Gee, to the fundamental ideas behind different approaches to discourse analysis. Gee stresses how grammar sets up choices for speakers and writers to make choices which express perspectives or viewpoints on reality. In turn, these perspectives are the material from which social interactions and relations, identity, and politics make and remake society and culture. Introducing Discourse Analysis is an essential primer for all students of discourse analysis within linguistics, education, communication studies and related areas.
