Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

By placing grammar in a broader framework of meaning making, this course wants to debunk the myth of grammar as something that is on the wrong side of meaningful communication. We will study the basics of Systemic Functional Linguistics in order to gain a deeper understanding of how lexico-grammar empowers us to create meaningful and coherent texts, to talk about events, express our relationships with others, and convey different viewpoints. After familiarizing ourselves with the foundations of a functional view of language (genre, register, metafunctions of language) we will study different sub-systems of grammar and the choices they afford for expressing our experience of the world. This course will also explore the potential of a functional approach to language structure for the teaching of English and for language education in general.
This course combines mini-lectures, on- & offline assignments, reading-based group work and discussion, and individual research work leading to a presentation and final written paper (either term paper or BA-thesis).
We recommend that you do this course only after completing at least ELT Foundations 1 and Language in Use 1.

Course objectives:
By the end of this course participants will be able to
• explain how cultural and situational contexts affect language choice and use;
• identify the grammatical resources used to express and connect ideas, interact with others, and create coherent texts;
• develop teaching ideas based on systemic functional text analysis
