The collection of articles in Discourse Studies in Public Communication illustrates that public communication is a fascinating, evidence-based storehouse for research in discourse analysis. The contributions to this volume — in the spheres of political rhetoric, gender and sexuality, and corporate and academic communication — provide good evidence of contemporary social structure, social phenomena, and social issues. In this way, following the parameters of different analytical frameworks (critical discourse analysis, cognitive metaphor theory, appraisal theory, multimodality, etc.), the contributors address not only the linguistic aspects of texts but also, and more importantly, the cultural and cognitive dimensions of public communication in a range of real life communicative contexts and kinds of discourse. Although the volume is addressed, first and foremost, to readers with diverse interests in English linguistics, it may also prove valuable to scholars in other non-linguistic research fields like communication studies, social theory, political science, or psychology.

Table of Contents
“Unquestionably, this edited volume has achieved the primary stated aim of exploring discourse studies in public communication. It is also well organised and easy to read by people who are interested in this field. Using a diverse range of theoretical and methodological frameworks, as well as various types of datasets, it provides in-depth analysis of public discourse. In brief, these articles shed light on more recent topics of research in discourse study, which will be expected to be a significant research area for years to come.”
“It presents not only the interrelation between public discursive events and social power and ideology, but also the transforming effect that can be brought about by them (Wodak and Meyer, 2015). Manifesting distinct features for public discourses, this volume will be of interest to scholars in both linguistics and non-linguistic research fields like communication studies, sociology, political science, or psychology.”
