Review quote

The greatest value of Methods of Critical Discourse Analysis is its ability to present CDA in a concise and introductory way. In this volume, readers will find a fair presentation of CDA's agenda, shared goals and the diversity which characterizes this field of research. It is recommended reading for CDA beginners, for those researchers from different fields of humanities or social political fields who want to get a fix on the school so they know what they will adhere to if they choose to adopt a CDA perspective in their research, as well as for experienced CDA researchers, always interested in the latest developments of this ever evolving and exciting schoolDiscourse Studiesshow more
