Read an Excerpt

"Discourse, as the term appears in the title, and as it is used in the papers collected here.... refers to both text and talk, and these not as two separate genres to be compared and contrasted, but rather as overlapping aspects of a single entity. As the object of study, spoken discourse is 'text', much as words spoken in a speech are commonly referred to as the text of the speech. In this sense, 'discourse' and 'text' are synonymous." -- from the Introduction
