English Studies What is meant by discourse analysis The term discourse analysis is very ambiguous I will use it in this book to refer mainly to the linguistic analysis of naturally occurring connected speech or written discourse.Roughly speaking, it refers to attempts to study the organisation of language above the sentence or above the clause, and therefore to study larger linguistic units, such as conversational exchanges or written texts. Analyzing the Meaning of Sentences Analyzing the Meaning of Sentences We have seen how useful it is to harness the power of a computer to process text on a large scale However, now that we have the machinery of parsers and feature based grammars, can we do anything similarly useful by analyzing the meaning of sentences Queer Theory Definition Literary Example Dr Katherine D Harris Eng , Fall Queer Theory Definition Literary Example I from Dr Mary Klages, UC Boulder

I bought this based entirely on the title. What a mistake. Had I checked the back cover, with names like Lacan, Zizek, and Derrida, I would have steered clear of the thing. To be fair, the introduction was not bad, and the actual case studies were mostly interesting as historical narratives. Tellingly, much of the book becomes gobbledygook when the authors try to theorise what the narratives mean--especially the chapters using the above trio. The hegemony analysis makes a bit more sense, luckily [...]

it did not meet my expectations. I hoped clearer empirical accounts of discourse analyses which touch upon methodological issues. Overall, all analyses remain vague and loosely inter-connected.

It is a bit hardly written. Not a piece of cake reading, but delivers very good understanding over the subject.

excellent compendium!
