Subject: [Critics-l] CDA is NOT a method of critical discourse analysis

For debate, please see this brief piece of debate on the new website<> of the (new, Spanish and Portuguese) Association for the Study on Discourse and Society (EDiSo):

CDA is NOT a method of critical discourse analysis<>

Maybe it helps to get less theses, books or papers in discourse journals that claim to do CDA as a method, instead of specifying, in detail, what explicit and systematic method(s), among many in the humanities, psychology and the social sciences, they are going to apply to describe the structures, strategies and contexts of socially situated text or talk.
