I myself have a tremendous interest in Discourse Analysis as it
has been a large part of my Greek studies here at The Criswell
College. I do have a couple of sources that have proven to be
The Semantic Structure of Written Communication by Beekman, Callow
This work outlines the theoretical backbone of DA.
Semantics and Translation by Katherine Barnwell
This work expands on the above and how DA affects translation
written communication into receptor tongues.
SIL has also published a number of Semantic Analyses of different
books and from this a reader can see the fruits of DA.
All are published by SIL International and available from
In my studies, I have also discovered that Stanley Porter has a
number of articles as well as essays available on it. Jeffrey
Reed's dissertation was a discourse analysis of Philippians and is
downloadable. I would also recommend "Intermediate New Testament
Greek: A Linguistic and Exegetical Approach" by Richard Young
(published by Broadman and Holman) as it contains a chapter on
discourse analysis and deals with some of the underlying
linguistic theories throughout the book.
