Book Description

The central concern of this book is the analysis of verbal interaction or discourse. This first six chapters report and evaluate major theoretical advances in the description of discourse. The final chapters demonstrate how the findings of discourse analysis can be used to investigate second-language teaching and first-language acquisition and to analyse literary texts.

If your going to study Discourse Analysis (DA) then whis would be a very good book to start with as it is very informative. Another excellent author would be Fairclough (Language and Power).

If you like coulthard then you will like his book on Forensic Linguistics - very informative and good for academic courses in the field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing coincidence. 6 July 2013
By Paul Carney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was first introduced to discourse analysis, and this book, on my BEd course (Roughly when this book was first published). I found the subject very interesting aided considerably by Coulthard's way of presenting it. I thought of this subject when it became necessary for me to talk to a group of people about differences in American and British speech presentation and ordered it through Amazon. Here's the coincidence, the bookseller is an English book company that sells ex-library books. This particular book came from the university library, and time, where I did my BEd. Who knows? Perhaps it was the one that I took out of the library back then? :D
