Develops foundational knowledge and skills required for analysing communication and speech and language breakdown including the application of various aspects of phonetics and linguistics. The phonetic and phonological characteristics of vowels and consonants will be investigated utilising the International Phonetic Alphabet. The formation and structure of English words, phrases, clauses and sentences will be explored along with how language is used in interactions and variations in English.
- Broad transcription of words and phrases using the International Phonetic Alphabet and Harrington Cox Evans vowels
- Stress, syllables and phonetic transcription
- Morphological analysis and classification of words
- Syntactic analysis of phrases and clauses
- Types of clauses, tense and aspect
- Key features of discourse and pragmatics in both verbal and written communication
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
