Boston: Heinle & Heinle. Course Content: In this course, we will work to understand the sound, word formation, sentence, meaning, and discourse patterns of both spoken and written English. We will examine how the different structural systems function separately and in conjunction with one another, as well as variance across different varieties of English, examining both their unifying characteristics as well as their diversity. The material covered in the course is relevant to teachers at the public school level and to those requiring a basic knowledge of the form and function of American English.
