      Learners often have difficulty participating in natural, authentic conversations. Why might this be?

      “In any text, there resides a whole syllabus waiting to be uncovered.” To what extent do you agree with this statement?

      1 What is ‘discourse’?
      Discourse is any connected piece of speaking or writing. It follows that discourse analysis is the study of how the separate ‘bits’ of language which make up the discourse are connected in such a way that the discourse makes sense. And if it doesn’t make sense, of course, discourse analysis enables us to find out why. To a large extent, discourse analysis involves looking for patterns of language which are not obvious from looking at individual sentences in isolation, but rather reveal themselves only when the discourse as a whole is examined. Linguists attempting to untangle the workings of discourse therefore have to look beyond individual words or sentences, just as they do when engaged in other ‘text-based’ linguistic study, such as conversation analysis or genre analysis.

      Dear Professor Hoey,
      I spoke to you briefly at the International House Directors of Studies Conference
      in London in January following your talk on lexical priming, during which you suggested that if anyone wished to have a copy of your presentation they should contact you by e-mail. Does this offer still stand? If so, I would be very grateful if you could send me a copy, as I am intending to put together an in-house teacher training session for my teachers here in Buenos Aires in order to introduce them to your lexical priming theory.
      Best regards, and thanks once again for a fascinating talk,
      Neil McMahon

      Dear Neil
      I'm sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. I went away to Malaysia a month ago and came back to 650 messages (non-Spam). I've still got 556! It feels like the pile will never shrink. Anyway, enough of excuses. I'm happy to attach my presentation.
      All the best
