`Students embarking on any form of discourse analysis will be grateful to have such a thorough, wide-ranging and scholarly resource to guide them through the complexities of the terms and ideas associated with the field. Baker and Ellece's impressively comprohensive and rigorously cross-referenced glossary of key terms of discourse analysis angages with a wealth of diverse frameworks and thinkers, acknowledging the methodological and theoretical breadth of Discourse Analysis as an analytical approach. Each entry is distinguished by illustrative examples, mostly taken from naturally occuring instances of language use, which both enliven the explanation and ground the reader's understanding in working illustration of the terms or phenomena under discussion. An invaluable resource and "must own" text for any discourse analysis student or researcher.'---BETHAN BENWELL, Department of English Studies, University of Stirling, UK

Unlike many other areas of linguistics, discourse analysis is a complex field to define, comprising a number of related but different theoretical and methodological frameworks. Discourse can mean many different things to different people. Students often find these multiple meanings to be confusing and this book attempts to spell out and reconcile the different approaches, to give a holistic picture of discourse analysis as a branch of several disciplines.

As well as comprising a glossary of key terms, the book provides clear, illustrative examples, a section on key thinkers and their ideas, and key texts for further reading.
