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 a classroom or learning community context will be analysed and a written text will be analysed using genre and critical discourse approaches. Theoretical principles underlining discourse studies and techniques will be analysed.
