Introducing discourse analysis

Language, in its natural state is not isolated sentences: it is text. As teachers of second language users our priority is to help our learners engage with texts. In this witty and incisive book Scott Thornbury takes discourse apart to show how it is organised.

Starting with an examination of genre, he goes on to look at how we structure written and spoken text. Scott shows how these insights affect our work as language teachers and suggests practical activities that can be used in the classroom to help students work with texts.

Beyond the Sentence will help you:
• find, select and adapt text for language teaching
• unpack the hidden message of texts
• evaluate and use learners' texts in a more constructive ways

We based our evaluation of book condition on the following criteria:

New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition.

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.

 * Acceptable: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text.
