LNGS2604 - Discourse Analysis

Semester 2, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Monika Bednarek

Description

This unit of study provides an introduction to discourse analysis, which is concerned with the way in which texts are organised in relation to their social context. In linguistics, the term 'discourse' covers both a) the organisation of linguistic units above the sentence level (cohesion), and b) language in use or context (register and genre). The unit will include analysis of texts combining language with image, from the perspective of critical discourse analysis.
