Language and the Design of Texts
Janks, Hilary
English Teaching: Practice and Critique, v4 n3 p97-110 Dec 2005
By demonstrating lexical and grammatical analysis--the rough work that underpins critical discourse analysis--this paper demonstrates the importance of grammatical knowledge for the critical reading of texts. It also provides readers with a grammar rubric for working systematically with the linguistic analysis of texts and argues that Fairclough's model enables teachers and students to move beyond text analysis to an examination of texts in contexts. (Contains 6 footnotes, 5 tables, and 3 figures.)
