Books Info:

Discursive Practice in Language Learning and Teaching free pdf Discursive Practice is a theory of the linguistic and socio-cultural characteristics of recurring episodes of face-to-face interaction- episodes that have social and cultural significance to a community of speakers. This book examines the discursive practice approach to language-in-interaction, explicating the consequences of grounding language use and language learning in a view of social realities as discursively constructed, of meanings as negotiated through interaction, of the context-bound nature of discourse, and of discourse as social action. The book also addresses how participants' abilities in a specific discursive practice may be learned, taught, and assessed.
