Editorial Reviews

¿This discourse analysis handbook wins hands down as the most intellectually responsible in the field - both in terms of the comprehensiveness of the topics considered and the international spectrum of specialists involved.¿ James Martin, University of Sydney, Australia ¿The Handbook of Discourse Analysis is accessible to undergraduates and yet a state-of-the-art introduction for graduate students and practicing researchers in a wide range of fields. There are many introductions to or handbooks of Discourse Analysis available today. This is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and internationally representative of them all.¿ Sarah Michaels, Clark University, USA
