This accessible satellite textbook in the Routledge
Intertext series is unique in offering students hands-on
practical experience of textual analysis focused on speech
and writing. Written in a clear, user-friendly style, it
combines practical activities with texts, accompanied by
commentaries and suggestions for further study. It can be
used individually or in conjunction with the series core
textbook Working with Texts. Designed for beginning
undergraduate students, this book analyzes the processes
involved in writing and speaking; highlights the differences
between these two modes of communication; explores written
texts, including legal documents, literary discourse,
recipes, instruction manuals; explores spoken texts,
including telephone conversations, interviews, television
programs, intimate talk; explores mixed-mode texts,
including email, advertisements, election publicity, written
conversations, non-interactive speech; compares and
contrasts spoken and written texts on the same topics.
