Teach yourself Critical Discourse Studies !!!



One of the things most needed by those who want to learn about discourse studies (DS) in general, and about Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) -- in particular, is an accessible introduction to the field.

Happily, there are now several introductions to discourse studies, and also some introductions to Critical Discourse Studies.

Unfortunately, not all students in the world have access to these books. Also, these books may not answer all the questions you might have!

Therefore, some years ago, on this website I began to post brief "lessons"  as a guide to Teach Yourself Discourse Studies.

Unfortunately, this project was clearly too ambitious: I never seem to have the time to write these lessons... Sorry.

Maybe in the future...?
