Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain some diagrams. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module and is an optional part of the assessment. Figure descriptions are provided for all figures.

Finding information

You may be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online. Alternatives for required/assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module.


This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system and an end-of-module assessment submitted online.


You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment.


All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills.

Specialist software

The software supplied with the module is called the corpus tool and enables analysis of texts. A print handbook with screenshots is supplied to guide you with the use of the tool. Use of a mouse is required for some parts of the corpus tool. The software is an optional part of the assessment for an assignment and the end-of-module assessment.
