Meaning and Communication (7 May - 24 May 2002)
 
The Meaning and Communication course builds on your own knowledge and experience of language, and offers a chance to learn and think about how language works. The course includes insights from recent developments in linguistic theory, such as Text Semantics, Relevance Theory, Lexical Semantics and Scenario and Metaphor. These theoretical approaches are applied to texts and your experience of real language use.
 
This course aims to be of value to all those working in areas of cross-cultural communication, language development, literacy and translation. The course increases awareness of how communication can be improved and why it sometimes fails, and will help participants to build these insights into their current and future work. The course is based on adult learning principles and aims to be stimulating and enjoyable.
