Discourse analysis is an under used research method which I would like my students to explore as an option when undertaking their own research.

A very helpful resource, presenting a good balance of theoretical information and actual examples of discourse analysis of text. The appendices include more material which is helpful to the reader, both at novice and more advanced level.
