Part 2 of this textbook offers us 6 chapters covering 6 different methods - from the purist CA approach to Pragmatics - 1. Speech Act Theory; 2. Interactional Sociolingusitics; 3. The Ethnography of Communication; 4. Pragmatics; 5. Conversation Analysis; 6. Variation Analysis. As a springboard into the field of Critical Discourse Analysis, there is a lot to gain in terms of establishing the underlying principles of descriptive analysis in Schiffrin's work.

Comments to eBook Approaches to Discourse (Blackwell Textbooks in Linguistics)
Samut
Truly outstanding resource. It's really many in one: it covers a great deal of approaches to discourse that would otherwise take many volumes to read. I was glad to have purchased it and will look out for more from Schiffrin in the future.

I know, I know, Discourse is all about Schiffrin, I mean- she wrote the book! However, this book is now outdated and is far too long-winded and meandering. I suggest a re-write, Dr. Schiffrin.

I gotta give Deborah SOME credit; compiling the research and writing a book like this is no easy task. HOWEVER! If your intention is to learn about discourse analysis/how to do discourse analysis, good luck. I can't quite put my finger on why this book is so inaccessible (writing style, poor explanation of material/concepts(?)), but I would hope there is a better alternative out there.

I am writing this ostensibly in order to counter the unsubstantiated views of the previous reviewer. I have used this book to teach undergraduates about the range and relevance of the various methods used in analysing discourse - spoken and written. Deborah Schiffrin has provided a very useful addition to the study of discourse for students who might feel overwhelmed by the various - often mutually exclusive - approaches.

The book starts with a well presented look at different definitions of Discourse - essential if we are to establish the relevance of competing methods.

Part 2 of this textbook offers us 6 chapters covering 6 different methods - from the purist CA approach to Pragmatics - 1. Speech Act Theory; 2. Interactional Sociolingusitics; 3. The Ethnography of Communication; 4. Pragmatics; 5. Conversation Analysis; 6. Variation Analysis.

As a springboard into the field of Critical Discourse Analysis, there is a lot to gain in terms of establishing the underlying principles of descriptive analysis in Schiffrin's work. Despite this being fairly old now by academic standards, I would certainly recommend the addition of this textbook to the reading lists of first year, and possibly second year undergraduates who are studying Text and Discourse Analysis.
Freaky Hook
This book is written in abstruse academese and is a closed loop: terms are defined in the jargon of the field. To an expert in the field, useful, to a novice, incomprehensible. The writing style is dull, opaque, verbose, and redundant. (She constantly says, "put another way" and the 'other way' is as incomprehensible as the first way). Also, she misrepresents formal grammar.
Faell
Every chapter is worst than the last in this terribly written book. We can only hope that the new edition will be better, but I seriously doubt it as the author is a hack.
