General description

This course concerns how language can be used to convey, gain and maintain relative power in spoken and written discourse. The emphasis is on how power affects the different areas of written and spoken discourse, including institutional and influential language use, and how it interacts with social factors such as culture, status and distance. During the course, students will get familiar with recognising various patterns of discourse relating to power as a linguistic concept, gather their own data, and do their own analysis of it.
Course requirements

Group/pair research and oral presentation, including opponentship; active class room and Moodle participation; peer review.
