Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course description:
Noun phrases play a crucial role in everyday communication, typically providing information about the things we want to talk about. For this reason they have been studied in great detail: there’s a wealth of literature on their internal structure and their various semantic and discourse-pragmatic functions. In this course we will concentrate on why and how the meaning, function and form of noun phrases change over time, looking at some of the diachronic processes that underlie these changes (grammaticalization, lexicalization, subjectification, etc.). In groups, students will investigate a specific type of noun phrase construction (e.g. "sort-of"/"kind-of" constructions, measure noun constructions), using corpus data to study their development over the last 200 years.

Course aims:
-Students will learn to analyse complex noun phrases, and to recognize changes in their function and form;
-Students will be able to conduct (in groups) a research project on the grammaticalization or lexicalization of a particular noun phrase construction, based on relevant corpus data.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will be assessed on the basis of a research proposal and research report (group work), a presentation and an interview (individual evaluation). Regular class attendance (max. two absences) and active participation are required.
