Abstract:

The central idea of this volume is the simple insistence that the structure of a 
part of a discourse (or text) needs to be explained in light of the structure of 
the whole. This thesis needs to be repeated anew to every generation of 
students of linguistics as a warning against analytic nearsightedness—the 
fixation on particular parts of a text without regard to the whole. Holistic 
discourse analysis is not a plea to abandon the analysis of lower levels of 
grammar, but to enrich the study of them by putting them in broader 
perspective.

The book includes chapters addressing subjects like discourse analysis and 
its purpose, text typology, and constituent-based charting with an analysis of 
a story in terms of peak and profile. It discusses functions of different verb 
types and their tense/aspect/modality, of noun phrases, and of clause 
combining in discourse. It also includes a chapter with a layman's 
introduction to discourse analysis which addresses and illustrates its crucial 
concerns, and another discusses ways to represent combinations of 
sentences in a paragraph. The last three chapters deal with non-narrative 
discourses: procedural, hortatory, and expository. The book concludes with a 
helpful glossary of terms and an index to the languages referenced in the 
volume.

This book offers itself both as a classroom text and a field manual for 
discourse analysis. It can also serve as an introduction to the more 
theoretically oriented volume, Longacre's The Grammar of Discourse (1996).
