Morphology (word level) Analysis of stem/root words, prefixes/suffixes, number, gender, person, “word families”… Syntax (sentence level) Study of sentence structures (clauses, subjects, verbs, objects…) Semantics (text level) Study of meaning: literal (denotation) and implied (connotation)
  6. 6. Powerpoint Templates Page 6 Literature? “Written material such as poetry, novels, essays, etc, esp works of imagination characterized by excellence of style and expression and by themes of general or enduring interest”.
