Textual Analysis within Sociological Research: Terminological Rather Than Methodological Difficulties?

Abstract


The article aims at providing some clear distinctions between different types of textual analysis that have different but sometimes interconnected theoretical and methodological grounds. Terminological confusions and the lack of clear-cut instructions for the empirical study of textual data within sociological research impede such research.
