Discourse and Genre: Using Language in Context

Bax, Stephen (2010). Discourse and Genre: Using Language in Context. Perspectives on the English Language. Palgrave Macmillan.


Discourse and Genre offers an authoritative, clear and systematic approach to analyzing language in context, illustrated through discussion of a wide range of authentic texts. The work begins by establishing the nature of discourse and genre, explaining the key terms and concepts, and then sets out an innovative and carefully explained approach to the analysis of language in context. A wealth of examples, including political rhetoric, legal language, text messages, jokes, online gaming interactions, news reports and sports commentaries, allows the reader to connect the study of discourse with the real language we experience around us.
