Synopsis

This course introduces students to methodological approaches to the analysis of language. Social and cultural contexts in which written and spoken texts occur provide the focus of the study. The means of analysing discourse structure and markers of coherent written texts will be examined. Naturally occurring language among first language speakers or between native and non-native speakers in classroom and community contexts will be analysed. In planning a discourse analysis project, students will select and apply research schema and techniques to a specific cultural setting or language community.
