About this product
- DescriptionIn the last three decades, metadiscourse has caught the attention of numerous scholars from various research disciplines. This book adds to the discussion by looking at the phemen from a historical angle. Text analyses with a corpus of sermons and religious treatises from the 13<UP>th to the 18<UP>th century provide new insights into the way authors guide their audience through their texts and persuade them of their points of view. The focus on the Middle and Early Modern English periods, which witnessed the disintegration of the Catholic Church in England, the Reformation, the decline of Scholasticism and the advent of Renaissance Humanism, makes evident the influence of socio-cultural factors, text-type conventions, and a changing author-addressee relationship on the development of metadiscourse.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Sandra Boggel studied English Language and Literature and Psychology at the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany). She then became a teaching and research assistant at the English department of the University of Cologne, where she completed her doctoral thesis on the historical development of metadiscourse in 2008.
