Academic Silliness Makes Me Grumpy

"Gilbert and Mulkay adopted the term 'discourse analysis' to describe the kind of empirical work they were advocating. However, with hindsight, this was perhaps not a wise choice, as at the time there were two other forms of analysis which were known by this title." (Wooffit, 2005, p. 39).
The heading of this section is "Discourse analysis, discourse analysis, and discourse analysis."

OH COME ON, GUYS.

STOP THAT.
