Linguistics and Language Teaching - APPL920

This unit introduces a model of language useful for language teaching contexts in which learners are faced with a variety of language demands. It explores the social and cultural underpinnings of language, introducing key concepts such as: the relations between text and context, language in context, text structure, the multi-functionality of language, clause-level and text-level grammar, spoken and written English, phonology and graphology. There is a strong emphasis on applying these concepts to second and foreign language teaching and learning.
