Summary

Discourse analysis is an area of immediate interest to language teachers because it involves the way people use language in real situations. Different models of analysis of both spoken and written language are outlined and evaluated in terms of their usefulness to language teachers. This is followed by chapters on discourse-oriented approaches to grammar, vocabulary, and phonology. The final section of the book looks at spoken and written language in the light of native-speaker and learner data and considers examples of teaching approaches based on the insights of discourse analysis.

Although the context is primarily English as a foreign language, teachers of other languages will also find much of relevance to their professional fields.

Discourse Analysis for Language Teachers
has a very practical orientation, and the text is interspersed with reader activities with guidance on appropriate responses at the end of the book.
