Abstract:

"Discourse on the Move is the first book-length exploration of how corpus-based methods can be used for discourse analysis applied to the description of discourse organization. The primary goal is to bring these two analytical perspectives together: undertaking a detailed discourse analysis of each individual text, but doing so in terms that can be generalized across all texts of a corpus. The book explores two major approaches to this task 'top-down' and 'bottom-up'. Both approaches are illustrated through case studies of discourse structure in particular genres fund-raising letters, biologybiochemistry research articules, and university classroom teaching."--Jacket.
