LANG 7670Linguistic Analysis of Children's Literature
This course aims to provide students with an overview of how language functions in literary texts written for children and young adults. Students will learn about the various genres in children’s literature and will be introduced to the language development issues for learners from birth to age eight. They will also learn how children’s literature may be incorporated into the language learning classroom. In addition, they will apply linguistic theories to analyse children’s literature texts, with particular attention being paid to figurative language use, conceptual metaphor analysis, narration, and multi-modal analysis. The course will serve as a good basis for students interested in applying linguistic analysis to small corpora, as well as those interested in language learning and teaching.
