English Lexis (Module)

Module description

This module examines both the formal and semantic aspects of English lexis, and also includes some discussion of the mental processes involved in understanding and using vocabulary. Illustrative examples will be taken from computer-based corpora of authentic spoken and written language, and students will gain experience of using concordancing software to explore a variety of aspects of the lexical system of English.
