Description:

New Directions in the Analysis of Multimodal Discourse offers a
comprehensive international view of multimodal discourse and presents new
directions for research and application in this growing field. There has long
been a need for a volume that addresses multimodal communication from
both a theoretical and a practical perspective. With contributions from top
scholars around the world, this work opens up the field of multimodal
discourse analysis as it covers a wide range of interests such as
computational linguistics, education, ideology, and media discourse.

The range and scope of the chapters in this book provide groundbreaking
insights into exploring and accounting for the various facets of multimodality
in a range of texts and contexts. Initial chapters specifically aim to tackle
theoretical issues, while subsequent chapters focus on important research
areas such as writing and graphology, genre, ideology, computational
concordancing, literacy, and cross cultural and cross linguistic issues. In the
final chapters, an emphasis is placed on the educational implications of
multimodality in first and second language contexts, a particularly new and
interesting contribution.

This volume will have wide appeal and is suitable for any researcher or
educator interested in multimodality and its applications in social interaction.
