Analysing Power in Languagebrings together a range of theoretical and analytical approaches to the critical analysis of discourse and integrates them within a coherent framework. In this way, Bartlett opens up the connections between whole texts and the social relations that underlie them. Each section of the book provides an in-depth presentation of a new method or set of related methods, worked examples of the methods, and texts for students to analyse and discuss. Answer keys are also provided for the analyses. Modelling discourse as a dynamic process, Analysing Power in Language: Explores the relationship between the goals of discourse, the social positions of the speakers, the contexts in which they are produced, the audience for which they are intended and the language features chosen Identifies a range of power types, appropriate to different contexts Considers potential challenges to existing discourses and the social systems that inform them Critiquing the established paradigm of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and the more recent studies done on Positive Discourse Analysis (PDA), this book equips students with the analytical techniques necessary for the critical study of texts as a gateway to exploring a range of contemporary issues in sociolinguistic research. Incisive and thought-provoking yet also accessible, Analysing Power in Languagewill be essential reading for advanced undergraduate, postgraduate and research students studying discourse analysis.
