This introduction provides an overview of the volume and the relation of individual chapters to the general theme of fuzziness. It is argued that the field of discourse studies is marked by complex boundary work and a great degree of fuzziness regarding theoretical frameworks, methodologies and the use of linguistic categories. The chapters in Part I discuss broader theoretical issues, meta-research as well as critical approaches and deal with the broader field of discourse studies. The chapters in Part II take a closer look at the fuzzy boundaries in terms of methodology and research processes pertaining to the narrower field of discourse analysis. Chapters in Part III offer insight into the fuzzy boundaries between lexico-grammatical categories, taking into consideration various aspects and sources of categorical fuzziness, such as grammaticalization processes, context-dependence, polyfunctionality, conceptual-procedural distinctions and so forth.
