CRITICAL SPEECH ANALYSIS—A QUALITATIVE RESEARCH METHOD

ANALISE DE DISCURSO CRÍTICA – UM MÉTODO DE PESQUISA QUALITATIVA

A book for those who are interested in doing speech analysis but lack in experience. Critical speech analysis – A qualitative research method is a new release that uses a methodological approach to a linguistic theory that has been sparking the interest of researches from several areas. The authors seek to contribute to the debate from a theorical-methodological perspective that, though is not new, has been producing results. Critical Speech Analysis (CSA) itself is one of many branches in the wide field of speech studies. In this book, the reader will find a systematic approach to speech that avoids generalizations and promotes the analysis of texts and practices that produce them. The book is organized in three parts: the first one is a discussion on CSA as a method of qualitative research for social criticism; the second one shows the link between CSA and ethnography; and the third one gives analysis examples.
