lessons will investigate the relationship between language and
ideology in a number of different areas. It is not only content of
texts which can communicate ideological ideas and value systems but,
at a less immediately perceptible level, also the forms of language
chosen and used by a writer. An analysis of a variety of different
texts will reveal how these forms communicate and perpetuate power
relationships and will lead to a more active, sensitive and critical
reading of seemingly objective or neutral texts.
