Our A-level English Language and Literature specification draws on the academic field of Stylistics in order to create an integrated English Language and Literature course which brings together literary and non-literary discourses. This specification integrates literary and linguistic fields via shared concepts about the way language choices create representations, both in literary and non-literary texts.
At A level the specification utilises non exam assessment (NEA) as a means of developing integrated literary and linguistic analysis where pupils work independently to investigate and explore a specific technique or theme in both literary and non-literary discourse. Candidates will demonstrate the use of appropriate terminology when analysing texts and will discuss and evaluate the relationships between different text types.
