Discourse Analysis in English Studies.
Nyyssonen, Heikki
Discourse is basically interactive. This is clear in conversation, but the concept can be extended to written language. Written text can be analyzed as spoken discourse. The methodology of English text studies has adhered too much to a textual approach and even extended it to spoken data. Another approach would be to begin with the spoken form of discourse, interpreting spoken discourse as such first and extending that approach to written text. (MSE)
