"[T]he most comprehensive interdisciplinary one-volume set of readings on discourse that is available today. Jaworski and Coupland have succeeded in combining their broad coverage with a clear focus on the social nature of discourse."-Jef Verschueren, International Pragmatics Association "'Finally we have it. This book belongs on the shelf of everyone with an interest in discourse from beginning student to seasoned researcher.' Ron Scollon, Georgetown University, USA."
