Sage benchmarks in language and linguistics


This thorough and massive reference reprints 66 seminal journal articles on all aspects of critical discourse studies, a social science that draws from such fields as rhetoric, linguistics, anthropology, and literary studies to examine the relationship between language and society. The volumes focus in turn on concepts, history, and theory; methodologies; case studies of doing critical discourse analysis; and applications, interdisciplinary perspectives, and new trends. The topics include theoretical and methodological aspects of Foucauldian critical discourse analysis and dispositive analysis, a context-sensitive approach to analyzing talk in strategy meetings, towards a systematization of critical discourse analysis categories in the representation of social groups, Slovenia as a case study in the media representation of the discrimination against the Roma in eastern Europe, reflections on discourse and critique in China and the West, and visual arguments in political leaflets of Austrian and British far-right parties. The volumes are paged separately. There is no index.
