The purpose of this course is to enable students to apply discourse analytic method to critically observe language use in various social contexts.
We will continue to study practical applications of discourse analysis to real-life situations to enhance our understanding of how language plays a crucial role in different social contexts. Students will be encouraged to collect their own data, analyze them critically and discuss their findings in class.
