Summary
This book fills a significant gap in the field by addressing the topic of absence in discourse. It presents a range of proposals as to how we can identify and analyse what is absent, and promotes the empirical study of absence and silence in discourse. The authors argue that these phenomena should hold a more central position in the field of discourse, and discuss these two topics at length in this innovative edited collection. It will appeal to students and scholars interested in discourse analysis and critical discourse analysis. Melani Schröter is Associate Professor in German Linguistics at the University of Reading, UK, and the author of Silence and Concealment in Political Discourse (2013). Her research interests include political discourse analysis, silence and absence in discourse and communication, comparative analyses of European migration discourses, and discourses of resistance. Charlotte Taylor is Senior Lecturer in English Language and Linguistics at the University of Sussex, UK, and Editor of CADAAD Journal. Her research specialisms include impoliteness implicatures, and discourses of migration, and she has a longstanding interest in methodological issues. .--
