Text and Practices provides an essential introduction to the theory and practice of Critical Discourse Analysis. Using insights from this challenging new method of linguiistic analysis, the contributors to this text reveal the ways in whcih language can be used as a means of social control.
The essays in Text and Practices:
* demonstrate how critical discourse analysis can be applied to a variety of written and spoken texts
* deconstruct data from a range of contexts, countries and spheres
* expose hidden patterns of discrimination and inequalities of power
Texts and Practices, which includes specially commissioned papers from a range of distinguished authors, provides a state-of-the-art introduction to critical discourse analysis. As such it represents an important contribution to this developing field and an essential text for all advanced students of language, media and cultural studies.
