Sociological Discourse Analysis: Methods and Logic
Keywords:discourse analysis, qualitative research, textual analysis, contextual analysis, sociological interpretation, abduction
AbstractSociological discourse analysis shares many of the procedures of other social sciences. Yet sociologists differ greatly in terms of how they approach discourse analysis, thus leading to confusion and doubts regarding the scientific status of sociological discourse analysis. In this article I attempt to clarify the methodological basis of sociological discourse analysis by differentiating it from other discourse analysis practices. To do so, I examine what sociologists actually do when they analyze discourse, while focusing on the common elements and principles shared by the different approaches to sociological discourse analysis.
