Theory and Method in Discourse Analysis: What Context for What Unit?
Schiffrin, Deborah
Language & Communication, v17 n2 p75-92 Apr 1997
Illustrates the interdependence between theory and method by showing how the methods underling even a relatively simple analysis of discourse are imbued with theoretical import. Focuses on two methodological decisions that are a standard part of the set of discourse analytic tools: what is context and what is the unit of analysis? (39 references) (CK)
