    Aims and Scope

    The handbook brings together key findings and current research issues in the linguistics of text and conversation based on a research tradition extending across 40 years. The basic focus is on the ways that texts and conversations constitute, represent, discursively implement, and communicate knowledge. General survey articles on characteristic features of texts and conversations are supplemented with essays on specific communication areas.
