Research in Critical Discourse Studies - Website Teun A. van Dijk


Old articles Teun A. van Dijk


The articles listed below are available for your personal use only. Do NOT post, distribute or forward copyrighted articles.

This is an ongoing project (of scanning, etc.) which will take some time. I hope that eventually all my older articles (especially those in  English and Spanish) will be available here.

When citing these articles, please cite the original source of publication (year, journal or book, as well as page numbers) as mentioned below. These source details are NOT mentioned in the articles themselves.

In my List of Publications on this website you may find some more information about each article, e.g., if it was given as a paper at a conference.

If articles do not have references this is because there is a general reference list for a whole book. (I hope to add these references later).

These articles have nearly all been scanned. This means that errors may have been made that I may have overlooked. Please help me to trace these errors and report them to me (vandijk at discourses.org). Thanks.

It is very hard to scan figures, so these are often left out or have poor quality. My apologies for this. I hope that one day I can add the original figures.  Assistance to do this will be appreciated.

All files are in .pdf format. This format can be read with the (free) Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded from the internet. To download click here.

The list of articles below is ordered by year of publication (not of writing).
