The discourse analyst focuses on â€œan investigation of what that language is used forâ€, it means purpose and aim of communication, as has actually been mentioned before (Yule 1983: 1). Levels of analysis Crystal (1997: 15) mentions a few levels of analysis which are highly important for a detailed analysis of a text. Each level represents one area of linguistics such as lexicology or phonetics and phonology. On the basis of these areas different levels of analysis can be distinguished: phonetic and phonological, graphological, grammatical, lexical. Verdonk mentions importance of pragmatics and claims that â€œpragmatics is concerned with the meaning of language in discourse, that is, when it is used in an appropriate context to get particular aimsâ€ (Verdonk 2002:
Explicit, systematic and multi-sensory phonics instruction produces effective decoding skills. Phonics can be taught both implicitly or explicitly. Implicit phonics begins with a whole word and then looks at beginning sounds, ending sounds and context clues. Explicit phonics does the reverse by building from a single letter to a
Discourse analysis has a growing importance within linguistic studies. Conversation analysis focuses specifically on the study of spoken language. One specific field is the use of linguistic cues for the recognition of personality. Can the idiolect (all of the specific properties that make up an individual’s language usage) tell us something about the personality of the speaker? Can speech analysis lead to personality definition?
2.1 SPEECH ACTS There are many theories that facilitate the analysis of spoken language. Definitely, speech act is one of those theories which notice communicative purposes between speakers and listeners. This effective tool aids learners to identify and label the differences of communicative functions through utterances of interlocutors. According to the theory as pointed out by Adolphs (2008) that particular speech act can be illocutionary, the gist of an utterance that a speaker produces, and perlocutionary, the actual purpose of the saying which can be direct and indirect. For example, the question Are you with me?
The six key elements of a balanced approach are, oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension, assist with developing competent readers. The development of reading skills requires a systematic balanced approach which is supported by various strategies to develop competent readers. It has
Language is the way that people communicate with one another, it can be spoken or written. (Robin 2013). The purpose of this language folio is to have a greater understanding of how English functions within a range of texts. The three aspects that will be discussed in this language folio are colour, language choice and structure and layout. Aspect 1 Colour Colour is an element is visual language.
Another benefit of being bilingual is the ability if utilize and expressideas in different languages. When people are confronted in a situation and they have to provide answer for particular question then bilingualism enable individual to find the appropriate word from two different languages thus it help them to provide best answers. It also allow one to rely on their skills and enhance their cognitive skills. However, it is also indicated that cognitive abilities of a bilingual individual is sharper than an individual who can only speak one language(Bialystok, Craik, &Luk, 2012). This has been observed that such people have great skills of accent neutralization, syntax understanding and code switching.
