Comprehension and Varieties of English

  • S. H. Burton
Chapter
Part of the Macmillan Work Out Series book series (MCWO)

Abstract

Note The different kinds of examination questions discussed and worked out in previous chapters test particular areas of knowledge and understanding and particular skills, as defined in the syllabuses of the various boards. The contents and the emphasis of the separate papers differ accordingly. Nevertheless, the focal point of English Literature studies is English. That is why, whatever its immediate ‘targets’, each paper is necessarily a test of:
  • (1) your understanding of the varied ways in which language works;

  • (2) your ability to give a clear and reasoned account of how writers make language work, whether in set books or in passages set for critical appreciation.
