LING291: Writing in English
This is a general education unit for students of any discipline who are concerned about writing, especially writing for academic, professional and other functional purposes. It aims to provide insights into the English language as a communicative system, and to foster a critical and informed attitude to language use in various kinds of written texts. Both in lectures/workshops and in the tutorials we analyse various principles of linguistic choice and organisation that produce successful written communication. By developing an understanding of what makes for successful communication in writing of others, writers can also learn to develop techniques for writing successfully themselves.
