In this module we will explore primarily literary texts with corpus linguistics methods. The aim of the course is to make students understand and appreciate functional interpretation and construction of texts. We will explore how language creates meaning, style and effect. We will examine texts individually and in context of other texts. During the course the students will gain awareness of the tools of stylistic analysis and corpus linguistic methodology.

Students are expected to have an interest in literary texts and both qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis. No prior knowledge of corpus linguistics is required.<br>
