    Language Area

    I've been asked to suggest three language areas I would choose to teach a Beginner Level class . What is a language area ?

    Hmm. Perhaps it means grammar, vocabulary, literacy etc. Those kinds of 'areas'? Or perhaps even more specific - pronouns, spelling, punctuation, past tense etc.

    Re: Language Area

    The subcategories of linguistics are usually called "levels":
    phonetics, phonology, morphology, synteax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, etc.
    Eg. Analyze this sentence on syntactic and semantic levels.

    I don't know what "language areas" are. They could be the same thing.
