About this Unit
In 2013, this unit replaced by 101947 - Pragmatics. This unit is part of the English Linguistics Major. It introduces students to two important fields of linguistics, semantics and pragmatics, with special reference to English. It intersperses the theoretical elements with practical applications through examples, exercises and textual analysis, which enable students to understand the significance of these fields of linguistics to the languages professions, such as interpreting and translation and language teaching. The unit also aims to refine students' academic writing skills through the preparation of a short research paper.
