How do people engage in, and competently manage discourse and interaction with others? How do members of various groups speak among each other and how do they communicate with people of other groups or cultures. What is the role of discourse in the perpetuation or legitimation of sexism or racism?Whether informal, everyday conversations or professional dialogues, people do many things while they are speaking ro writing. Discourse as Social Interaction focuses on the fundamental funtions of text and talk: interactional, social, political and cultural. It illuminates discourse as not merely form and meaning , but also as action, as both shaping and being shaped by culture.
