Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

After successfully completing this course students will have an
extensive knowledge of the grammar of written and spoken contemporary
English and be able to apply that knowledge in the analysis of the main
characteristics of specific text types and the production thereof.

Inhoud vak

The course has two components. The first is a detailed treatment of the
textbook, including weekly assignments on the highlighted chapters. The
second component involves discussion and analysis of a series of texts
belonging to different genres. The focus here is in the first instance
on determining how specific linguistic choices have an effect on the
coherence and readability of the text. However, equally important is to
consider how specific linguistic features of a text can be explained in
terms of broader features of the genre in question.
