Overview

Investigating English Discourse: Language, Literacy, Literature

Investigating English Discourse is a collection of essays that address the discourse of "English" as a subject of teaching and learning. Ronald Carter draws on recent applied linguistic work in the discourse analysis of English to link theory with practice.

Written in a clear, accessible manner, Carter includes examples from advertisements, poetry, jokes and public notices. Topics include grammar, correctness and standard English, critical language awareness and literacy, language and creativity, and discourse theory.
