In this book Paul Sullivan introduces readers to the theory and
method of dialogical discourse analysis (DADA). He unpacks its
conceptual basis, relates it to relevant methodological and
philosophical literature and demonstrates its practical
application. DADA derives from a strand of social psychology rooted
in the philosophy of Mikhail Bakhtin. It seeks to foreground the
role of atmosphere, subjectivity and authorial reflection within
texts. It also enables the researcher to attend to the conflicts,
judgments, and interpretive activities that take place in language
use. Practically speaking, DADA allows analysis on direct and
indirect discourse, speech genres, hesitations, irony, and a
variety of other conditions that in everyday life shape our
understanding of dialogue in context. As well as unpacking the
theory behind this innovative method, Sullivan provides sound
practical advice and this is a book that never loses touch with the
everyday analytic needs of the reader. Topics include: * The
theoretical foundations of the approach * Data preparation *
Applications of DADA * The future of discourse analysis Theoretical
discussion is consistently accompanied by research examples and
suggestions as to how DADA could be used in the reader's own
research. This important and timely book is ideal for any reader
who wants to do research with discourse and dialogue and who is
keen to attend to the full nuances and complexities of discourse.
