<p>'This book provides a very accessible introduction to discourse analysis, illustrated with compelling examples and drawing insightfully on a wide range of the latest research. Core concepts are clearly defined and exemplified. I predict that this will prove an invaluable textbook for courses in Discourse Analysis both at senior undergraduate level and for graduate courses. The stimulating discussion questions and the suggestions for projects and further reading make it particularly attractive to teachers.'<p> Janet Holmes, Professor of Linguistics, Victoria University of Wellington.

Janet Holmes, Professor of Linguistics, Victoria University of Wellington. Brian Paltridge's Discourse Analysis: An Introduction is an extremely welcome addition to the growing number of books devoted to this increasingly important area. Exceptionally, the volume strikes an excellent balance between both spoken and written discourses, as well as between theoretical and applied studies. The coverage of previous work is comprehensive, but many of the copious illustrations are drawn from lively contemporary texts that will appeal to readers. Further, each of the seven central chapters is rounded off with the discussion questions, suggestions for data analysis projects, and directions for further reading. Finally, the the writing is lively and accessible. There is every prospect then that Paltridge will become a standard text for undergraduates and graduates studying discourse analysis for the first time. John M. Swales, Professor of Linguistics, The University of Michigan 'This book provides a very accessible introduction to discourse analysis, illustrated with compelling examples and drawing insightfully on a wide range of the latest research.
