  • Discourse Analysis for Language Teaching gives a practical introduction to the field of discourse analysis and its relevance for language teaching. It begins by answering the question 'What is discourse analysis?' and examines how discourse analysts approach spoken and written language.

  • Meaning-Based Translation is designed for training beginning translators and organized chapter by chapter as drill material for the textbook Meaning-Based Translation.

The textbook has some exercises as well, but the workbook provides additional practice from one basic source, thus giving students a wider variety of problems to solve during practice time.

  • Authors: Laurence C. Thompson (1991)

  • As a basic work of reference it meets all the criteria of linguistic analysis, namely, thoroughness, comprehen-siveness, conciseness, and elegance. Among other features Profesor Thomp-son deserves the credit for calling attention to the endocentricity of Vietnamese constructions, to the existence of sub-syllabic morphemes, to a number of "relator-nouns" which previous authors had called "verbs" or "preposi- tions" (trong, ngoili, tren, dueli, etc.), to the notion of "focus" discovered in proper nouns, pronouns, and also circumstantial complements (of manner, place and time), and to a novel treatment of particles.

  • English for Specific Purposes (ESP) is now well established as an important and distinctive part of English Language Teaching. Since the late 1980's ESP has changed in two very significant respects. Firstly, English for Business Purposes has become an increasingly important, even dominant, area of ESP. Secondly, the work of discourse and genre analysis on the one hand and the results of computer-based analysis on the other provide a fuller understanding of how specific texts, both written and spoken, work. It provides an update of these major developments in ESP and a summary of where the discipline is now. It is practical and accessible while covering a wide range of both theoretical and methodological topics. It also charts how ESP has been influenced by new ideas in the areas of ...
