English term or phrase: contrastive linguistics
Hey, I'm preparing myself to write my final essay on a linguistic theme.
I thought I will start analysing what a text is, which are some characteristics of a text and than go further and analyse differnet aspects of different text types. (For example I thought to analyse discourses).
But I don't know how to start this analyse?(Could I do it contrastive, between German and English?)Or would it be more interesting to analyse newspaper articles or other written texts?
What would you advise?
Thanks a lot,

Emilia
