  1. Contesting hydrofracking during an inter-governmental hearing: Accounting by reworking or challenging the question.Richard Buttny - 2015 - Discourse and Communication 9 (4):423-440.
    An inter-governmental hearing on hydrofracking for natural gas is examined. The Department of Environmental Conservation recently released an Environmental Impact Statement and takes questions from the New York State Assembly. Assembly members pose concerns with the EIS. The DEC’s responses at times appear to not address the question, but rather to challenge or rework the question in a way that can be answered from the DEC perspective. Assembly members assess seeming evasive answers in critical ways. This interactional pattern is examined (...)

    Wal-Mart's presentation to the community: discursive practices in mitigating risk, limiting public discussion, and developing a relationship.Richard Buttny - 2009 - Discourse and Communication 3 (3):235-254.
    This study examines Wal-Mart representatives' presentation to the community on their site plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Given the ongoing controversy and criticisms from local residents, it is interesting to see Wal-Mart's strategies in attenuating these risks and negative impacts. The discursive practices found here are: formulating prior citizen complaints by a neutral-sounding, legalistic language which works euphemistically or as a gloss. Citizen concerns are fitted into a problem-solution format where the solutions involve engineering technology. The Wal-Mart representatives display (...)
