Description

Analyzing Discourse is an introduction to discourse analysis for linguistic field workers. It is practical, addressing issues commonly confronted by field linguists. Rather than applying a rigid theory or surveying a variety of approaches, it provides a methodology that has been refined over years of use. The material follows a functional and cognitive approach that seems to be a good approximation of how discourse is actually produced and understood. Since the aim of the manual is introductory rather than comprehensive, most chapters are relatively short, and the whole can be covered in fifteen classroom hours. References are provided for further reading on the topics discussed. The manual can be used individually or in group sessions, such as in a formal course or a linguistic seminar. In a group setting, concepts can be illustrated by examining further texts than those provided in the manual. Robert A. Dooley has a Ph.D. from Oklahoma State University. He has been involved in translation and the literacy team in the Brazilian Mbya Guarani language project. He also has served as Brazil SIL Linguistic Consultant and as Director of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, University of North Dakota Session, from 1988 to 1993.
