The course aims to offer an overview and introduction to linguistic description of the English language at various levels.

- view language as a research subject
- identify various research areas (e.g. general and applied linguistics) and research orientations (e.g. language and society) in linguistics
- recognise the central levels of linguistic description (phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis, semantics, pragmatics) and the basic terminology related to them
- apply basic linguistic terms and analysis into English and describe the basics of English as a system
- understand how knowledge of linguistics is related to building their own profiles of language expertise.
