Domains of Discourse


About the Series

The Routledge Domains of Discourse series features cutting edge research on specific areas and contexts of spoken language, bringing together the framework and tools for analysis of a discourse.

As our understanding of spoken communication develops, corpus linguistics promises to provide the unifying link between previously compartmentalized areas of spoken language such as media discourse and language pedagogy.

Designed to present research in a clear and accessible form for students and researchers or practitioners, each title in the series is developed around three strands:

  • Content each title focuses on the subject matter of a particular discourse, e.g. media or business
  • Corpus each title is based on a collection of relevant spoken texts in its domain of discourse
  • Methodology each title engages with a number of approaches in language and discourse analysis
