Hei, I am preparing to write my final essay on textlinguistic. I want to start writing about what a text , characteristics of a text and than analyse it particularly on dicourses.
Could you suggest how a discourse could be analysed (or even compared to discourses in another language-contrastive linguistic). And where I can find different types of discourses?
Thanks a lot,
Emilia

Try your local Academic Library for starters Oct 19, 2006

There has been a lot of work done on discourse analysis over the last few years, so it won't be that hard to find documentation on the texts you want to analyse and compare.

In the linguistics department of any university you would expect to be able to find textbooks on Discourse Semantics, Discourse Analysis and Text Linguistics.

If you do want to check the internet to find texts, corpora and the like, you might want to try a keyword search in google... the first thing I encountered was a short essay on Discourse Analysis that seems to be worth reading at http://www.criticism.com/da/da_indet.html

Otherwise you might find what you are looking for at LinguistList.org

Good luck!
