Example text

First, I turn to the ways that we understand and study academic discourses by looking at the main theoretical and methodological perspectives brought to bear on them. 19 2 Approaches Having constructed a broad view of the topic, I now want to begin to fill in some of the details by looking a little more closely at how analysts go about researching and understanding academic discourse. By approach, then, I mean the adoption of one or more ways of conducting analyses supported by an integrative theory or conception.

Some genres of academic speech, such as supervisory meetings, poster discussions and seminars for example, are closer to casual conversation in their relative informality and spontaneity, blending interactivity with transactional purposes (Biber, 2006). Other genres like prepared lectures and conference presentations, on the other hand, are usually scripted to be delivered orally and are consequently more tightly organized and patterned, while still carrying something of the provisionality and time-constraints of speech (Swales, 2004).

2 Textual approaches At the beginning of this chapter I suggested that approaches to discourse analysis spread between two poles of a cline, either tending to an emphasis on language or context. The goal of describing and explaining academic discourse means that analyses must ultimately incorporate both dimensions to show how we actively create a world of activities, identities, relationships and institutions through discourse. The notion of text, in other words, should be seen as a spoken or written instance of system, or the general communicative resources which are available to a particular community.
