Till now i have 9 articles, i guess is too much; last thursday i had a presentation with my two supervisors and they told me i’ve done too much linguistic analysis, and i shall focus more on microparts that i consider extremely important and proceed with the discouse analysis supported of course by the linguistical analysis.
In that sense, there are discourse analyses that are more analytical, for instance those that applying more formal approaches from socio-linguistics to establish how language works in a particular text.
