Using Movie as A Linguistic Model Of Instructional Language
A movie which is an audio-visual text can help learners acquire both linguistic and meta-linguistic awareness. Learners may learn about the language spoken by the characters consisting of vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, intonation. They may also learn from gestures to acknowledge linguistic meanings during the absence of language. This paper examines how a movie can be used as a linguistic model. It focuses more on the language components used in the movie, specifically those related to instructional language.Â The movie "Dead Poets Society" was chosen for this study because it contains many lines of the instructional language. It, then, analyzes the use of the instructional language in that movie to find out its linguistic features.
