AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Course description

The course continues the work begun in the first year. The major theories in pragmatics will be investigated in greater breadth and depth, with an emphasis on the social aspects of communication. The workings of the theories will be illustrated by applying them in the analysis of complete or ‘long’ texts in order to be able to better account for the socio-cultural and contextual aspects of communication.

 

TEACHING METHODS

Inductive. Students must participate actively in lessons (held in English) by commenting on examples and texts, from which the theory is induced.
