Why and how to do Discourse Analysis

Dr. Pedro Santander ( Escuela de Periodismo, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (Valparaíso, Chile).


The following article seeks to be a theoretical and methodological contribution for those who are faced with the task of realizing discourse analysis. In this sense, this text is especially directed to students who intend to perform this task in their thesis. In order to achieve this theoretical and methodological challenge, all along the article, it will be answering two questions: Why doing discourse analysis? and How is discourse analysis performed? As we may observe, the first question is of an explicative nature and the second has a methodological character.

Key words: theory, discourse analysis, sign, text, methodology.
