    One thought on “Analysing Discourse: Textual Analysis for Social Research”

    1. Fairclough is a TERRIBLE writer, and his intertwining of analytic methods and social theory concepts makes it hard to feel that you're hearing nearly enough about either one, but there's minable material in here if you're looking to find the workings of power in texts and conversations (conceived broadly)

    2. Notably more effective than previous editions. The 'upgrading' of ACD which Fairclough achieves through the incorporation of dialogic and pragmatic approaches to language renders it fairly more plausible for a consistent critique of discursive practices. It affords an empirical path to link individual 'agency' with social 'structure', although it still seems to fall short on its application as well as in the reflexive revisitation of its early works. All in all, a crucial reading for those inter [...]

    3. I always feel like half of these ''discourse analysis'' books could be scrapped due to common sense, but then I've had to endure some of it throughout my studies already, so maybe it's just a bit of experience.Very jargon heavy, though understandable. Some chapters were very interesting, and it wasn't really an effort to get through it.

    4. As much I'm influenced by Fairclough's other work, this 'textbook' was nothing short of impenetrable. Disappointing.
