"this Blackwell volume is the best volume for specialists because of its breadth and clear aim to write for professional linguists." (Exegetical Tools 2016)

‘The 2nd edition of The Handbook of Discourse Analysis boasts chapters by major figures (e.g. Gumperz, Holmes, Johnstone, Labov, Lakoff, Schegloff, Ochs, Shuy, Tannen, van Dijk, Wodak) and its reconfiguration of chapters captures important scholarly trends in discourse analytic research and reflects a fairly substantive reconceptualization of the field.’ (Susan Ehrlich, Journal of Sociolinguistics 20/2, 2016).
