Additional Book Details

"An outstanding introduction to discourse analysis of written language in an age that is more and more characterized by multilingual, digital, and generically hybrid texts. In an accessible style, Working with Written Discourse illustrates how these texts can be analyzed employing a wide variety of approaches that are critical, multidisciplinary, and productive."

- Professor Jaffer Sheyholislami, Carleton University

"Comprehensive and up-to-the-minute in its discussion of areas like multimodality and the new media, without overlooking ‘older’ media and more conventional writing. I will recommend it highly to students at all levels."

- Dr Mark Sebba, Lancaster University

Addressing the practicalities of research, and embracing the complexity and variety of written forms of language, this book:

grounds readers in a broad range of concepts, debates and relevant methods
focuses on both theoretical questions and the ‘how to’ of analysis
is loaded with practical activities and advice on the design and execution of research
highlights computer-mediated communication and new media discourse, from text messages and tweets to mobile phone novels and online encyclopedias 
draws on data from international and multilingual communities.

The perfect companion to Deborah Cameron′s best-selling Working with Spoken Discourse, this book equips readers with practical and conceptual tools to ask questions about written discourse, and to analyse the huge variety of texts that make up our linguistic landscape. It is the essential guide for students of discourse analysis in linguistics, media and communication studies, and for social researchers across the social sciences.
