AP/LING 3160 3.00
This course provides an introduction to discourse analysis, that is, the analysis of spoken and written texts in context. Central issues examined include: the relation between linguistic form and function; the relation between text and context; and the question of 'textuality' (i.e. how a randomly-ordered set of sentences is distinguished from a coherent 'text'). Approaches to discourse analysis covered include speech act theory, interactional sociolinguistics, critical discourse analysis and conversation analysis.
