This course serves as an introduction to the linguistic description and analysis of language on the level of discourse. While building on the knowledge acquired in the introductory module, we will move beyond the analysis of single, isolated and de-contextualised sentences. We will investigate how participants use language as a resource for communicating and interacting with each other, for structuring and unifying discourse and for displaying social identity, beliefs and opinions. Furthermore, we will discuss the role of context and co-text for (fully) understanding any (written) text or (spoken) piece of discourse.

To achieve the learning outcome, students will be provided with, and expected to prepare, a selection of regular readings as well as worksheets. In the sessions, we will discuss central concepts from the material, but our focus will be on applying the theory and getting some practice in. Regular hands-on analyses of genuine (written and spoken) English data will serve as preparation for the assessment.
