Leader: Lorraine Bullock

Clayton Second semester 2003 (Day)
Clayton Second semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: This unit offers an examination of the internal relationships which create textual coherence. The unit aims to develop students' insights into the way a text becomes a meaningful and unified unit of communication. Students will be required to analyse a variety of English language models. Emphasis is placed on the relationship between the organisation of structure, the content and the expectations of the reader. Influences such as the context and the intertextual links formed by the message are also examined during the course. Students have the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of a range of textual theories in the creation of their own texts.
