This course aims to promote understanding of the relation between language structures and lexical items as well as raising awareness of the attribution of meaning by means of these structures. Within the framework of a context, advanced language structures are analyzed so as to establish relations between form and text type. Synthesizing these structures, students produce advanced level texts employing these structures

COURSE OBJECTIVE
The general objectives of the course require each student to:
• Develop a critical perspective into advanced level structures of different types of texts on a contextual level
• Evaluate the most problematic forms of English grammar learning about their function by using methods such as error analysis or discourse analysis
• Use the advanced English grammar structures in various contexts.
