Aims, contents and method of the course

In this lecture course we will study the relationship between the different parts of its title. In so doing we will be revisiting concepts and topics in linguistics which students might find familiar, but showing how they can be extended and integrated to provide a coherent account of English in use. The objective of the course is to encourage students to develop their own critical understanding of language use by considering their studies of English language, linguistics and literature from a fresh perspective.
