RESUMEN
This subject takes a discourse analysis approach to the study of interpersonal communication,
understood as the practice of social interaction for the purposes of persuasion, evaluation and the
expression of opinions, among others.
The course will address the specific pragmatic strategies used in interpersonal communication and
assess their linguistic, social and professional implications. The course will introduce different theoretical
frameworks for the analysis of interactional structures (dialogues, polylogues, etc.) as it is in and through
these that individuals negotiate, maintain or challenge relationships and identities.
The practical analyses will involve interaction between two or more participants in different institutional
and professional genres or modes as well as in everyday contexts. The distinction between public and
private communication will also be considered (e.g. online discussion forums or emails about a range of
topics).
The study of interpersonal communication will contribute to the in-depth understanding and
characterisation of interactional genres, modes and discourses, at times hybrid, and will also provide
more complex communication skills in the English language.
