Here are a couple of references that have a lot of pointers to the literature,
and give you an introduction to the field. There are two groups: books from
general linguistics, and from the perspective of the biblical texts:
>From general linguistics:
Gillian Brown, George Yule, Discourse Analysis. Cambridge, 1983.
Robert de Beaugrande, Wolfgang Dressler, Introduction to Text Linguistics.
Robert E. Longacre, The Grammar of Discourse. Plenum, 1983. (My "bible" ;-)
>From the perspective of biblical studies, here are a couple:
Walter Bodine, ed. Discourse Analysis of Biblical Literature. What it is and
What it Offers. Semeia Studies. Scholars Press, 1995. (Lots of
David Allan Dawson. Text-Linguistics and Biblical Hebrew. JSOTS 177. Sheffield
Robert D. Bergen, ed. Biblical Hebrew and Discourse Linguistics. SIL, 1994.
Stephen H. Levinsohn. Discourse Features of NT Greek. A Coursebook. SIL, 1992.
(There may be a better intro to NT discourse analysis than this. I'd be
interested in other suggestions for a first text in NT Greek discourse.)
There's a lot more out there, of course.
