Linguistic Theories And Frameworks

Students will study systemic functional linguistics in order to critically analyse spoken and written discourse. The analysis is concerned with understanding how grammatical choices function to realise particular registerial configurations, genres, and ideologies. In addition, meanings arising from the use of other semiotic resources such as visual images are discussed. At the conclusion of the module, students will be in a position to undertake graduate research using a systemic functional theoretical framework.
