Project Concept

The final project allows students to apply different frameworks of discourse analysis and stylistics on an authentic text of their choice.



Analyzed text should be authentic, i.e., not a figment of one’s imagination, but a record of an existent interaction. It could be spoken or written, literary or non-literary, in Arabic or English. Spoken text is to be transcribed, and the audio/video file containing the text is to be submitted along with the project for instructor review. If the text is in Arabic, examples may be cited in Arabic, but all discussion of text is to be in English.


Discourse Analysis and Stylistics Perspectives

Discourse and stylistics perspectives are to be applied in a comprehensive and sophisticated manner. That is, indices are to be clearly highlighted, explanations of their relation to frameworks are to be explained, and connections with other aspects of discourse are to be made. Perspectives discussed in class include:

1.      Intertextuality in discourse

2.      Differences between spoken and written discourse (grammatical intricacy, lexical density, nominalization, explicitness, contextualization, spontaneity, repetition, hesitation, redundancy)

3.      Speech acts (illocutionary acts, directness/indirectness in relation to syntactic structures)

4.      The cooperative principle (maxims, meta-discourse, flouting, violating, opting-out, implicatures)

5.      Politeness (positive face, negative face, face-threatening acts, mitigating devices, politeness strategies)

6.      Identity construction through language

7.      Indexing gender in discourse

8.      Critical discourse analysis

9.      Stylistics
