BEYOND THE SENTENCE - INTRODUCING DISCOURSE ANALISYS
This introduction to discourse analisys examines the features and functions of different types of texts and shows how to incorporate them into language teaching. Scott Thornbury explains what makes spoken or written text coherent and the ways that sentences are combined to make newspaper articles, conversations, speeches, novels and advertisements. He shows how an understanding of discourse helps students to deal with the language needs of work, study and exams. The book includes example photocopiable lessons (see pages 164 to 185) to get you started.
