  How to do Discourse Analysis How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit  is the essential new book from  James Paul Gee, and the companion to his bestselling  An Introduction to Discourse Analysis: Theory and Method . Discourse analysis is widely used in a range of academic subjects, all concerned with how humans make meaning and communicate within and across different social and cultural groups. Using a practical how-to approach, Gee provides the tools necessary to work with discourse analysis, with engaging step-by-step tasks featured throughout the book. Each tool is clearly explained, along with guidance on how to use it, and authentic data is provided for readers to practice using the tools. Readers from all fields will gain both a practical and theoretical background in how to do discourse analysis and knowledge of discourse analysis as a distinctive research methodology. How to do Discourse Analysis: A Toolkit  is the ideal preparation for future learning in discourse analysis and applied linguistics, meant for those interested in learning discourse analysis by doing it. The inter disciplinary approach means that it is suitable for students across a range of subjects, including applied linguistics, anthropology, and communication studies.  James Paul Gee  is the Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies at Arizona State University. His many titles include  An Introduction to Discourse Analysis , Sociolinguistics and Literacies  and Situated Language and Learning , all published by Routledge.  ‘‘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 , this text 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, Rutgers Graduate School of Education, USA  How to do Discourse Analysis A Toolkit James Paul Gee  First published 2011by Routledge2 Park Square, Milton Park, Abingdon, Oxon OX14 4RNSimultaneously published in the USA and Canadaby Routledge270 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10016 Routledge is an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, an informa business © 2011 James Paul GeeAll rights reserved. No part of this book may be reprinted or reproduced or utilized in any form or by any electronic, mechanical, or other means, now known or hereafter invented, including photocopying and recording, or in any information storage or retrieval system, without permission in writing from the publishers.
