From the Publisher"This is without a doubt the most accessible and user-friendly book on discourse analysis to come along for many years. It is an ideal companion to Gee’s previous book, An Introduction to Discourse Analysis, and will make for an ideal textbook in a wide range of undergraduate courses in language, linguistics and English studies."
Rodney Jones, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
"As an ideal companion to An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method, How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit is more hands-on in its approach to understanding and applying discourse analysis in research, teaching, and learning. It is a pleasure to read Gee’s simple, clear, humor-injected prose. Part of his brilliance derives from not only making theory accessible, but also anchoring discourse in authentic contexts. The book is essential reading for students and scholars exploring the nuances of language."
Jennifer Rowsell, Brock University, Canada
"How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit" should not be seen as a mere textbook for undergraduate students in linguistics, but as an essential guide highly recommended to researchers in social sciences and a range of professions dealing with written, spoken or multimodal texts.' - LINGUIST List
"The volume offers a rich contribution, not only in respect of illumination and application of the selected tools, but also of what are essentially ethnographically and sociolinguistically motivated perspectives on DA more generally." Discourse Studies
