Abstract:

New Directions in the Analysis of Multimodal Discourse offers a 
comprehensive international view of multimodal discourse and presents new 
directions for research and application in this growing field. There has long 
been a need for a volume that addresses multimodal communication from 
both a theoretical and a practical perspective. With contributions from top 
scholars around the world, this work opens up the field of multimodal 
discourse analysis as it covers a wide range of interests such as 
computational linguistics, education, ideology, and media discourse.
 
The range and scope of the chapters in this book provide groundbreaking 
insights into exploring and accounting for the various facets of multimodality 
in a range of texts and contexts. Initial chapters specifically aim to tackle 
theoretical issues, while subsequent chapters focus on important research 
areas such as writing and graphology, genre, ideology, computational 
concordancing, literacy, and cross cultural and cross linguistic issues. In the 
final chapters, an emphasis is placed on the educational implications of 
multimodality in first and second language contexts, a particularly new and 
interesting contribution.
 
This volume will have wide appeal and is suitable for any researcher or 
educator interested in multimodality and its applications in social interaction.
