Welcome to the course Text Analysis in English I!

The course aims to give students an insight into different types of texts and language used within these, highlighting the stylistical differences of each text and aims of the authors. Texts used in this course offer a variety of genres and time periods – both modern and older texts. Alongside learning about the importance of semantics, students will learn about typical grammatical and stylistic structures. One cornerstone of understanding a text is the ability to summarise it, as every successful translator should be able to understand the main contents and aim of the text’s author before begining a translation.
