• Dr Mark Perkins deposited Aspects of Discourse Stream Analysis on Humanities Commons 1 year, 3 months ago

    The huge proliferation of textual (and other data) in digital and organisational sources has led to new techniques of text analysis. The potential thereby unleashed may be underpinned by further theoretical
    developments to the theory of Discourse Stream Analysis (DSA) as presented here. These include the notion of change in the discourse stream in terms of discourse stream fronts, linguistic elements evolving
    in real time, and notions of time itself in terms of relative speed, subject orientation and perception. Big data has also given rise to fake news, the manipulation of messages on a large scale. Fake news is conveyed in
    fake discourse streams and has led to a new field of description and analysis.
