Advances in Written Text Analysis
Routledge, 2002 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 336 pages
This work provides an overview of a wide range of approaches to written text analysis. It includes both classic and specially commissioned papers by distinguished authors, which share a common linguistic framework. The pieces contain a variety of focuses from the patterning of paragraphs, sections or whole texts to the organization of clauses, individual expressions and single words, as well as a variety of text-types. The examples used range from pure science through social science, academic journals, weekly magazines and newspapers, to literary narratives. This collection forms the basis for an course on written text analysis that should be of interest to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students.
