Therefore they would say that conversation analysis falls under the discourse analysis umbrella rather than being separate from it. Sociologists, however, see discourse as encompassing naturally occurring talk, scripted talk, text, practices, ideology, and power and, for this reason, distinguish conversation analysis, which is solely about talk, from discourse.
