[Handbook of Discourse]
Ed. by Warnke, Ingo H.
Series:Handbücher Sprachwissen (HSW) 6
Aims and Scope
The handbook explores the notion of “discourse” using basic linguistic concepts and the methods of discourse linguistics. Different linguistic approaches see discourses in terms of dynamic, heterogeneous, and conflictual constellations. The volume also covers the materiality of discourse as knowledge-based coding of social conventions and beliefs, thereby capturing current debates in discourse linguistics.
