English A1 lang & lit EE help?

Recommended Posts

So for my EE, I'm comparing the spoken and written/typed language used by teenage Tumblr users. I plan to conduct spoken interviews with people, then analyse their spoken language in comparison with the language they use online.

I'm just not sure whether to analyse the language within a literary framework (in terms of literary techniques - like anaphora, idioms etc.) or a linguistic one (through semantics and syntax) - my supervisor said a linguistic framework would be more appropriate to that kind of investigation but didn't know if that would still meet the criteria for an English EE.

Soooo, does anyone know whether I'm able to use linguistic theories as the basis of my EE, or will I need to use literary ones? Thanks! :)

Why not use both approaches?
