Abstract:

This book brings together cutting-edge research on multimodal texts and 
the 'discourses' generated through the interaction of two or more semiotic 
modes of communication; for example language, dynamic and static visual 
images, architecture and three-dimensional objects in the realm of 
material lived-in space, electronic media, film and print. This includes 
the study of transition and phase, camera and body movement, typography, 
layout and the use of colour, and how such choices orientate the viewer to 
particular readings of the text and context. 

The contributors collected within this volume use the systemic functional 
approach to present frameworks which are used to analyze how meaning is 
generated within a series of case studies. The result is a comprehensive 
survey of the ways in which enhanced meaning emerges through the 
interaction of more than one mode of communication. 

Multimodal Discourse Analysis will be useful to researchers interested in 
the application of systemic functional linguistics to media studies, 
discourse analysis and coginitive linguistics.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
