Apr 01, Ed Summers rated it liked it. Paltridge provides a very clear overview of various modes of discourse analysis. There are lots of jumping off points into the literature, and practical exercises to show how to apply the various theories and methods. In my Discourse Analysis class we had to leave Paltridge to look at Ethnography of Communication, which perhaps was a gap of some kind.
Sep 13, Trevor rated it liked it Shelves: I have mixed feelings about this book. This is a really nice idea. There are also exercises to apply some of what you have learnt — and that is nice too.
The problem is that within the chapters themselves the examples used are often remarkably crap — well, at least, I have mixed feelings about this book. The problem is that within the chapters themselves the examples used are often remarkably crap — well, at least, I thought so. I guess I need to remember that this is a kind of textbook and so it is meant to be read by people who are very much not me. What does that mean? Well, it means people who are able to quote large slaps of Sex in the City without feeling in the least embarrassed and, I know, as hard as it is to image, actually be quite fond of the show.
How can you watch such utter crap? Were you dropped on your head as a child?
Discourse Analysis: An Introduction (Continuum Discourse) Brian Paltridge: Continuum
Given that, I found a lot of this a analysls annoying. However, this did bring together a lot of stuff I have been reading and even pointed me in directions where I really ought to go next in my reading. Honestly, it gets so much better. When you read people really using this well as a form of analysis of the world we live in — it is like nothing else. As the Italians say, meglio di sesso.

Jun 15, Fatima marked it briann to-read. Jul 07, Laid Kamel discourwe it it was amazing. Nov 05, Amelia rated it it was amazing. The book is a general introduction to CA. It is concise and clear.
Feb 08, Michael Brjan rated it it was ok. TESOL literature at its best is passable and at its worst is simply dreadful. This is a case of something between those two extremes. This one covers quite a few areas broadly included in the concept of discourse analysis, however it hardly informs about any one area before moving on to the next topic.
My suggestion would be, if you have to read this book, that you read whatever chapters you need for your course or ideas and the move on to the books he has listed at the end of the chapters — th TESOL literature at its best is passable and at its worst is simply dreadful.
My suggestion would be, if you have to read this book, that you read whatever chapters you need for your course or ideas and the move on to the books he has listed at the end of the chapters — they are usually the key texts or at least significantly contributive to the fields being discussed by the author in these skimpy chapters.
Apr 28, Americaussie rated it liked it. A very decent paltridgs to DA.
In my opinion, the edition has a cleaner layout, which makes it easier to use for reference. I think this book would benefit from a better overview of multimodal DA.
