Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this course we will explore the nature of the human word-store or 'mental lexicon'. We will be looking at processes of word-formation, at approaches to word meaning, at the phonological and syntactic information in the lexicon, and at formulaic language or pre-fabricated chunks. Furthermore, we will discuss how people learn words (in a first and second language), and how they understand and use them. Finally, we will also acquaint ourselves with the dictionary on the shelf and try to relate it to the one in the head.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

These classes focus on one area of linguistics, seeking to attain two basic goals:
a) to provide an overview of a specific area as well as a sound knowledge of both past developments and the present "state of the art". Weekly readings (textbook as well as supplementary material) are required.
b) to provide a more in-depth treatment of a particular aspect of the area by means of a research paper, which should introduce the student to the basic skills of researching and writing such a paper. In-class presentations or discussion forums on the paper topic give the students the opportunity to argue their ideas.

Prüfungsstoff

All of this will be done by combining short phases of lecturing with pair, group and whole class discussions, based on (task-oriented) readings.

Participants' own research projects will be based on further and more in-depth reading on selected topics and will be presented in class. Assessment is based on class participation, assignments, presentation and a final paper.
