English Grammar builds on analytical skills learnt in Year 1 which illuminated grammatical form. It does this by taking a functional approach. Using Systemic Functional Grammar, where the role of grammar in meaning-making is emphasised, the module will enable you deepen your understanding of how texts communicate as well as facilitate your evaluation of their communicative effectiveness. This module provides students with both the functional tools and theoretical frameworks to develop evidence based accounts of written language. It also draws on a number of the tools of linguistic analysis introduced in the foundational first year modules, and provides further application of the analytical skills and theoretical frameworks encountered throughout the BA degree.
