This chapter has two research aims. The first is to examine how speakers mark importance both at local and more macro levels in a particular discourse type. The second is to demonstrate how methodologies typically employed in corpus-assisted discourse studies (CADS), particularly the combination of quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis, that is, the moving backwards and forwards between statistical analysis and close reading, are particularly effective in investigating this somewhat neglected topic of importance marking in discourse.

Abstract

This chapter has two research aims. The first is to examine how speakers mark importance both at local and more macro levels in a particular discourse type. The second is to demonstrate how methodologies typically employed in corpus-assisted discourse studies (CADS), particularly the combination of quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis, that is, the moving backwards and forwards between statistical analysis and close reading, are particularly effective in investigating this somewhat neglected topic of importance marking in discourse.
