The 17th Volume in the Sociolinguistics in Deaf Communities Series

From Choice

Roy (interpreting, Gallaudet Univ.) has put together a collection about the linguistic aspect of discourse in sign languages. The seven chapters are divided into four sections: “Depiction in Discourse,” “Cohesion in Discourse,” “Coherence in Discourse,” and “Discourse in Native American Sign Language.” Subjects discussed include the use of registers and discourse markers. The book brings together a group of scholars from across disciplines—such as cognitive linguists, sociolinguists, and discourse analysts—in order to analyze connected conversations, narratives, and storytelling. The contributors use various methodologies and approaches in order to arrive at a working definition of discourse analysis, a term that scholars use to describe language interactions in different settings and situations that suggest different meanings. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty, professionals.

Cynthia B. Roy is Professor, Department of Interpreting, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC.
