How to Analyse Texts is the essential introductory textbook and toolkit for language analysis. This book shows the reader how to undertake detailed, language-focussed, contextually sensitive analyses of a wide range of texts - spoken, written and multimodal. The book constitutes a flexible resource which can be used in different ways across a range of courses and at different levels. This textbook includes: * three parts covering research and study skills, language structure and use, and how texts operate in sociocultural contexts * a wide range of international real-life texts, including items from South China Morning Post, art'otel Berlin and Metro Sweden, which cover digital and print media, advertising, recipes and much more * objectives and skill review for each section, activities, commentaries, suggestions for independent assignments, and an analysis checklist for students to follow * a combined glossary and index and a comprehensive further reading section * a companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/goddard with further links and exercises for students. Written by two experienced teachers of English Language, How to Analyse Texts is key reading for all students of English language and linguistics.
