Obiettivi Formativi

The course aims at bringing students to realize the complex aspects of verbal interaction through the analysis of various conversation strategies. The concepts of speech acts, politeness strategies, implicature etc. will be dealt with from a theoretical standpoint and checked in a play text rich in problematic dialogic situations. The major purpose is to help students improve their awareness of the implications of social encounters, and also to offer them tools to analyse various type texts, towards a proficient use of L2.

The course will also include a brief study of the relevance of punctuation for efficacious and correct writing.

The course will be held in English
