ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This assignment examines isiZulu texts within the framework of text-linguistic theories by various scholars and researchers, which illustrate linguistic elements that can be incorporated into the teaching methodology of writing. Appropriately applied, these elements can develop learners' analytical skills as advanced in Curriculum 2005 in the languages learning area. A text-linguistic analysis of isiZulu newspaper texts on current affairs from different editions of Ilanga newspaper has been performed. This analysis reveals that text construction reflects generic factors such as the economic and social status of the community, its culture, which influence the communicative purpose. An attempt is made to investigate in detail the parameters of the ethnography of writing as advanced by Grabe and Kaplan (1996). These parameters are: who, rites, what, to whom, for what purpose, why, when and how. It is argued that once the learner has mastered the parameters for text construction and analysis, he/she will be better equipped to achieve the learning outcomes specified for writing of Curriculum 2005.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Hierdie studie ondersoek tekste in isiZulu binne die raamwerk van die tekslinguistiese teorieë van verskillende navorsers wat illustreer hoe tekslinguistiese elemente en eienskappe ingesluit kan word in die onderrigmetodologie van skryfvaardigheid. Indien hierdie onderrigmetodologie doeltreffend toegepas word, kan die bemeestering van hierdie elemente leerders se analitiese vaardighede ontwikkel, soos wat bepaal word in die leerarea vir tale van Kurrikulum 2005. 'n Tekslinguistiese analise van koerantartikels oor huidige gebeurtenisse vanuit verskillende uitgawes van die Ilanga koerant is uitgevoer in hierdie studie. Hierdie analises het aangetoon dat tekskonstruksie van isiZulu bepaalde generiese faktore reflekteer, soos die ekonomiese en sosiale status van 'n gemeenskap, wat weer die skrywer se kommunikatiewe doelstelling beïnvloed. Die studie poog om 'n in-diepte analise te maak van die parameters van die etnografie van skryf soos voorgestaan deur Grabe en Kaplan ten opsigte van die isiZulu tekste. Hierdie parameters word soos volg gestel: Wie skryf wat, aan wie, vir watter doel, hoekom, wanneer en hoe. Dit word geargumenteer dat as leerders van isiZulu eers die parameters vir tekskonstruksie bemeester het, sal hy/sy beter in staat wees om die leeruitkomste vir skryfvaardigheid te bereik, soos gespesifiseer in Kurrikulum 2005.

OKUCASHUNIWE Le-thesisi iqukethe izinhlobonhlobo zama-thiyori aqhamuka nongqondongqondo bezifundiswa, nabacwaningi abehlukene abasebenzisa izinhla zenkulumo ezingafakwa emaswini okufundisa ukubhala. Uma engase asetshenziswe ngokuyikho lama-thiyori mhlawumbe lingakhuphuka izinga labafundi lokuhlahlela imibhalo njengokulangazelelwa ngumnyango wezilimi kuKharikhulamu 2005. Kuyole-thesisi kunohlahlelo lwemibhalo yesi Zulu olwenziweyo. Lemibhalo ibika ngezigameko zemihla namalanga eziqhamuka ezinhleni ezahlukene zephephandaba il.anga. Loluhlahlelo luveza ukuthi isakhiwo sombhalo noma itekisi (text) elithize, siqukethe inhlalompilo yabantu, ezomnotho, amasiko, kanye nenjongo yalowombhalo. Ngokusho kuka-Grabe and Kaplan (1996), umbhalo kufanele uchaze phela ukuthi : Ngubani obhalela bani, ini, ngasizathu sini, kwenzenjani, nini, kanjani? Uma umfundi engase akwazi ukuphendula okusambuzo ngenxa ngenkathi ebumba noma ehlaziya umbhalo, kuyobe izimfuno zika-Kharikhulamu 2005 sezembulekile kuye.
