Linguistics

Module Overview

Originated by: Dr Felicia Rivera Megret

Linguistics is the scientific study of language and involves an analysis of language form, language meaning, and language in context. The earliest activities in the documentation and description of language have been attributed to the sixth century. Linguists traditionally analyse human language by observing an interplay between sound and meaning.

This module looks at the way we use language. It includes class and individual storytelling as a way of exploring the wide range of language available to us. We also experiment to see how we can use words to better effect.

We will explore

  • How we use language to communicate
  • Finding out how to use language to better effect
  • Storytelling as a way of conveying an experience
  • ‘Changing your language’
  • Using different language in different situations

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Observation of thoughts
  • Teacher assessment
  • Class activities

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
