This review is from: How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit (Paperback)
If you liked Gee's 'An Introduction to Discourse Analysis', you'll love this. An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method
This is a perfect companion to the theory book as it takes you through all the questions you need to ask of your data when conducting a Discourse analysis, as well as pointing out the different ways in which your data can be interpreted so you don't miss anything out.
Gee's writing style is accessible, as always, and provides a comprehensive, but easy to follow guide in conducting your own discourse analysis.
As well as explaining each of the stages or 'tools' of Discourse analysis, there is also a very useful quick-reference list of all the analytic 'tools' at the end of the book. A must-buy for anyone wanting to apply Gee's version of Discourse analysis in their research.
