Engeström, Y. (2007). Putting Vygotsky to Work: The Change Laboratory as an Application of Double Stimulation. In H. Daniels, M. Cole, & J. V. Wertsch (Eds.), The Cambridge Companion to Vygotsky Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

= this is a good introduction to a method of stimulating more productive dialogue, of the kind Eugene called “instrumental dialogue”, though I imagine it is really a mix of kinds.

Halliday, Michael. 1978. Language as Social Semiotic. London: Edward Arnold.
Halliday, Michael. 1985. An Introduction to Functional Grammar. London: Edward Arnold.

= these are the classic descriptions by Halliday of his notions of “metafunctions” (Ideational, Interpersonal-Attitudinal, and Textual) and of “register” (field of discourse, tenor of discourse, and mode of discourse); there are several later, revised editions of the 1985 book.

Bakhtin, Mikhail. 1935/1981. “Discourse in the novel.” In M. Holquist, Ed. The Dialogic
Imagination. Pp. 259-422. Austin TX: University of Texas Press.

= this is the best source for Bakhtin on “heteroglossia,” the part of his theory of discourse in literature that discusses the different social languages of different social groups or professions in society; for my interpretation of this, see my book Textual Politics (below)

Lemke, J.L. 1995. Textual Politics. London: Taylor & Francis.
= see chapter 2 and the beginning of chapter 3 for my interpretation of Bakhtin’s heteroglossia

Lemke, J. L. (1990) Talking Science: Language, Learning, and Values. Norwood, NJ: Ablex.

= my empirical study of science classroom dialogue, with an early version of social semiotics theory. The publisher has changed a few times over the years.

Lemke, J.L. 2015. “Feeling and Meaning: A Unitary Bio-semiotic Account.” In Trifonas, Peter Pericles (Ed.), International Handbook of Semiotics. [chapter 27]. Dordrecht, NL: Springer.

= the most complete version of my theory of “feeling-meaning”, taking them as two aspects of the same process
