Discourse in late modernity: rethinking critical discourse analysis
Edinburgh University Press, 1999 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 168 pages
This pilot volume launches the Critical Discourse Analysis series by setting out a new and distinctive theoretical grounding for the subject. The authors identify and set out to meet three contemporary challenges corresponding to the problems, issues, and struggles of contemporary life; to ground critical discourse analysis in a coherent social theory and theory of critical social scientific research; and to clarify its relationship to other types of social analysis and to linguistics.
