APLN 551/5323 - Discourse of Analysis for Language Teachers (3 cr.)


Discourse analysis is typically thought of as studying language use above the sentence level. The central focus is on “how real people use real language, as opposed to studying artificially created sentences” (McCarthy, 1991, p.1). This course will provide an overview of the theories and methods of discourse analysis. We will explore various approaches to the analysis of both spoken and written texts and examine practical implications for language teachers and students. The course will be beneficial for students who are interested in conducting discourse based research and who would like to know how to use discourse analysis methods in their language classes.
