Spanish in Context

Spanish in Context

THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT IN GUADALAJARA

This class consists in the analysis of important aspects of the contextual uses of Spanish. It focuses on conditions that regulate the use of the language in specific contexts of communication. In specific situations, language becomes a mechanism of various values. This course will evaluate the use of interrogative sentences, negative structures, and metaphorical use of Spanish in different registers such as in a formal context or in verbal disagreement situations. Language is analyzed in this course as a second reading of its intentional use, with its metaphorical values, connotations, second meanings, exaggerations, analogies, etc. Some of the concepts studied here will be “verbal context”, “speech”, “communicative meaning”, etc. (1 unit)
