a critical discourse analysis of doctors-patient interaction in alternative medicine.

This is a proposal for a research paper at the Masters level.
I would like to use Systemic Functional Linguistic theory in the application of critical discourse analysis of dialogue between doctors of alternative medicine (as apposed to traditional medicine).
The intention of the this research is to attempt to see the networks of dialogues with this context.
referring to the following works:

* Using functional grammar : an explorer’s guide / David Butt … [et al.].Sydney NSW : National Centre for English Language Teaching and Research, Macquarie University, 1995.

*Conversation analysis, doctor-patient interaction and medical communication by Maynard, Douglas W., 1946

*Talk in action : interactions, identities, and institutions / John Heritage and Steven Clayman.Malden, Mass. : Wiley-Blackwell, 2010.

I would also like to refer to David Butts analyses of patient doctor interaction networks, since his analyses focused on surgical/medical doctors and has not resorted to analysing the interaction and language use of alternative medicine practitioners.I would like to see the difference in interactional networks of medical doctor-patient (Butt’s focus) and alternative medical doctors-patient networks of interaction.

thanks a lot.
