Review

'Would easily capture the attention of students new to language study ... an excellent introduction to text and discourse analysis, liable to stir up interest in the workings of the texts that surround us daily.' - Laurel Smith Stvan, University of Texas at Arlington, USA



Product Description

This accessible satellite textbook in the Routledge Intertext series is unique in offering studnets hands-on practical experience of textual analysis focused on speech and writing. Written in a clear, user-friendly style, it combines practical activities with texts, accompanied by commentaries and suggestions for further study. It can be used individually or in conjunction with the series core textbook Working with Texts. Designed for beginning undergraduate students, this book analyzes the processes involved in writing and speaking; highlights the differences between these two modes of communication; explores written texts, including legal documents, literary discourse, recipes, instruction manuals; explores spoken texts, including telephone converstions, interviews, television programs, intimate talk; explores mixed-mode texts, including email, advertisements, election publicity, written conversations, non-interactive speech; compares and contrasts spoken and written texts on the same topics.
