Identify for each oneIdentify for each one the topic – What is it about exactly? the focus – Is this stated, or do you have a choice of what aspect of the topic to focus on? the data - What will you analyse / work on? and the task – What do you want to /need to do? Do you want to / need to e.g. analyse, compare, or evaluate? Use the handout if necessary to help you.

10 LING 434 #5 Some linguists have asserted that the meaning we communicate is rarely coded directly in linguistic form. How then, in your view, is it coded? You may illustrate from any one or two languages. LING 410# 4 Discuss and evaluate three different models/frameworks of L2 motivation. Compare the individual components of the frameworks/models and discuss how they can inform good practice in the L2 classroom, also focusing on the implications your position has for teachers, head teachers and teacher trainers. LING 425 #2 Language learners’ motivation and/or willingness to communicate Using frameworks that are employed in motivation and/or willingness to communicate research (cf. Dörnyei, 2001; MacIntyre et al. 1998), you will explore the motivation/willingness to communicate in a specific L2 of learners of different cultures. Data can be collected with a questionnaire or with interviews, or a combination of both. If you conduct in-depth interviews, you do not have to interview more than 2 participants. If you do not conduct in-depth interviews, you will need to have at least 6 respondents for your questionnaire. LTCE Analyse the test answers of these students. Say how well you think the test worked, and make brief suggestions as to how you think the test might be improved. LING 490 # 6. Gradience in (English) grammar On the basis of several studies that invoke the notion of gradience, either included in Aarts et al. or published elsewhere, evaluate the value and status of gradience as an explanatory notion in grammar. LING STYLISTICS For this piece of assessment, you are expected to conduct a detailed and systematic stylistic analysis of a literary text or extract. The analysis will involve using what you have learned in class and in your readings to describe in detail the language of your chosen text and to explain its potential meanings and effects.For this piece of assessment, you are expected to conduct a detailed and systematic stylistic analysis of a literary text or extract.
