Discourse and ideologies

Christina Schäffner (Editor), Helen K. Holmes (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Discussing the relationship between ideology and language, this volume links structures of society, cognition and discourse. Ideologies, such as socially shared belief systems of groups, have to be inferred from more directly observable structures of cognition, interaction and the society. The notion of "opinion" and its complex relations to discourse and ideology are examined. Contributors to the debates in this volume include Michael Billig, Paul Chilton, David Graddol, Ulrike Meinhof and Kay Richardson.
