The aim of this course is to examine and analyze samples of spoken discourse. It looks at speech acts, genres, the functions of speech and some general features of spoken English (e.g. backchannels, modality, deixis, hedges, intensifiers, etc). It also gives an overview of the main differences of verbal and nonverbal communication. The samples of spoken discourse are mainly from the Internet and TV (political speeches, films and series).
