Methods in Language and Social Interaction by Ian Hutchby
Book DescriptionThis major work collects together the key contributions to the core traditions and research themes of Language and Social Interaction, a thriving international and interdisciplinary field. This field has developed over the last fifty years or so and now informs work in a wide range of disciplines across the globe, especially in Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Scandinavia and Southeast Asia. The central aim of Methods in Language and Social Interaction is to characterise the historical development and current status of the field while providing an account of, and illustrations of, its key debates. " Volume I covers the key linguistic traditions that have played a part in the development of this subject area. " Volume II focuses on the central contributions that have come from sociological and social psychological perspectives. " Volume III contains studies which examine, from various angles, the relationships between discourse and institutional dimensions of society. " Volume IV contains studies which examine the micro-social and interpersonal functioning of discourse.
