A tentative map of discourse studies and their place in Linguistics A tentative map of discourse studies and their place in Linguistics
Michael Hoey
Ilha do Desterro , 2008,
Abstract: In this paper I want to look at a range of approaches to discourse analysis with a view not to describing any of them in detail but to seeing how they relate to each other in the discipline. Surveys are a necessary evil at best; they inevitably offend by simplification and omission and ometimes by distortion as well. Despite my best endeavours, this survey is unlikely to be any exception. By way of compensation the latter part of the paper attempts a tentative characterisation of the place of discourse studies within linguistics in general and seeks to suggest why there are differences in focus between such studies; if this part of the paper offends, it will at least offend by commission. Discourse analysis has become over the past few years one of the growth areas of modern linguistics. As a result there is now far more being written every year than any person could possibly read. In estimates prepared for an inter-University working party on a computerised bibliography of ESP and Discourse Analysis, Hoey & de Escorcia reported that in 1981 an estimated 5,000 papers and 200 books were published on discourse. A consequence of this growth has been a parallel growth in terminological distinctions, reflected most schismatically perhaps in the two labels given to the sub-discipline(s) we study - discourse analysis and textlinguistics.

On Epistolary Novel and the Making of Modern Subject as a Discourse in the West
近代西方书信体小说与主体性话语的建构

浙江大学学报(人文社会科学版) , 2002,
Abstract: Modern subjectivity of the Westerners is neither natural nor intrinsic, but a discourse made during the modern period. The making of such a discourse is a complex process involved in the society's realms of politics, economy and culture, including literature. Epistolary novel as a new genre that rose and prevailed in European countries in the 18th century played an important historical role in the making of modern subjectivity. By its private themes, first personal perspective, subjective time-space mode and dialogical principle, etc, a discourse of subjectivity is made in the epistolary novel in keeping with the era, which finally led the Western modern historical subject into a modern community characterized by individualism away from a traditional collective one.
Applying Corpus Linguistics in Discourse Analysis  [cached]
Dongmei WANG
Studies in Literature and Language , 2013, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320130602.4002
Abstract: The present study employed corpus analytical tools to study and compare BP Company’s CSR reports before and after the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Corpus linguistics served in the research as a methodological tool since it ensured a more qualitative research methodology. And Fairclough’s three-dimensional conception was employed to explore how an organization uses justificatory discursive strategies to legitimize its operations after perceived disasters.
THEOLINGUISTICS IN MODERN RELIGIOUS DISCOURSE
Stepanenko Valentina Anatolievna
Magister Dixit , 2011,
Abstract: The article touches upon the problem of reservation of a special status of the spiritual Christian sacred place – Holy Mount Athos. The task of the research is to show that carrying out research is not the end in itself, it aims at the cognition of T(t)ruth and not so much the truth as the Truth. Modern linguistics, with this regard, is expected to deal with theocentric approach rather than anthropocentric one while studying W(w)ord or N(n)ame. Investigations of the Moscow school of theolinguistics are based not only on the works of Russian religious philosophers but also on the theological works by the Holy Fathers of Mount Athos.

Language: Classic – Modern – Postmodern , 2018, DOI: 10.18523/lcmp2522-92812018156148
Abstract: Background. The article deals with the ways of creation of pragmatic, semantic, syntactic coordinates of discourse portrait of language personality. Language personality is a type of linguistic description of the personality which contains psychological, social, ethical and cognitive components reflecting in his/her speech. It is a multi-level functional system, which embraces three levels: speech activity (language competence), conversational activity (communicative competence), and the knowledge of the world (thesaurus). This is the unity of abilities of creating and comprehension of speech products (texts) which differ of degrees and complexity of reflection of surrounding and certain purposefulness as well. Purpose. The analysis of O. Zabuzhko’s “The price of Winnie-the-Pooh” essay demonstrates a new trend of modelling of discourse portrait of language personality. Methods. Comprehensive application of categories of basic discourse analysis in creating discourse portrait is elucidated and illustrated. Results. The use of peculiarities of verbal behavior of a person who applies certain means of language is analyzed. That is why language personality is researched on verbal, cognitive and pragmatic levels. It is complicated multilayer functional system which unites the level of language competence, abilities to use the means of providing speech interaction (communicative competence) and knowledge of the world (thesaurus). This is a unity of abilities of creating and receiving of texts which differ by the degree and depths of reflection of reality and certain purpose. Discussion. Multifaceted research of speech communication as complex object asks for the necessity in using discourse analysis as contemporary integrated linguistic method. Discourse analysis develops today within the measures of psycho-, socio-, political linguistics etc. It is also used in the bordering social and humanitarian sciences such as philosophy, history, psychology, literary science, which in general supports the tendency of integration in modern scientific paradigm.

Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching , 2009,
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate what affect a technology based inquiry approach (TBIA) had 5th grade primary students’ understanding of earth, sun, and moon concept in a science and technology course and how this changed their academic achievements. This study was carried out in a 5th grade elementary science and technology course with two groups of (a total of 97) students. Four hour a week course was conducted over a 3 week period of instruction. As a result of the analysis of data, there were statistically significant differences between experimental and control groups (P<0.05). According to results, the achievement level of the experimental group with TBIA was significantly higher than the control group with a traditional teaching method. TBIA is more effective and successful than traditional teaching methods in elementary science courses.
