Subject: Discourse Analysis: ACADEMIC DISCOURSE

John Flowerdew
Professor, English Department, City University of Hong Kong

Academic Discourse presents a collection of specially commissioned
articles on the theme of academic discourse. Divided into sections
covering the main approaches, each begins with a state of the art
overview of the approach and continues with exemplificatory empirical
studies. Genre analysis, corpus linguistics, contrastive rhetoric and
ethnography are comprehensively covered through the analysis of
various academic genres: research articles, PhD these, textbooks,
argumentative essays, and business cases.

Academic Discourse brings together state-of-the art analysis and theory 
in a single volume. It also features:
- an introduction which provides a survey and rationale for the 
- implications for pedagogy at the end of each chapter
- topical review articles with example studies
- a glossary

The breadth of critical writing, and from a wide geographical spread,
makes Academic Discourse a fresh and insightful addition to the field
of discourse analysis.

John Flowerdew is Professor in the English Department of the City 
University of Hong Kong.
