Under Graduate Degree Semester module NQF level: 7 Credits: 12
Module presented in English
Purpose: To introduce students to text linguistic skills that will enable them to identify what makes texts coherent, to recognise differences between spoken and written texts, to identify the sort of coherence and cohesion problems that may develop in the writing of texts, to explain why we understand some texts more easily than others, and to compare various types of written texts (e.g. narrative versus academic writing).
