Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The course focuses on the application and the practice of analytical skills. It will be divided into four units, focussing on (a) phonetics and phonology, (b) morphology, (c) syntax, and (d) semantics and pragmatics. Since participants are expected to be familiar with the necessary terminological toolkit, the course will provide the opportunity for practising its application in concrete tasks and exercises to be done and discussed in class. - For preparatory reading see the literature section below.

Assessment and permitted materials

Assessment will be primarily based on four unit tests, which will administered at the end of each of the four content units mentioned above. Since the primary aim of the course is to consolidate participants' competence in structural linguistics analysis, classroom participation, albeit required, will have a comparably minor impact on the final grade.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This course presupposes and builds on a solid knowledge of core concepts of linguistic description. It aims at consolidating participants' skills in linguistic analysis on different levels of language structure, such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics.

Examination topics

Individual preparation in home study, practical analysis in sessions, discussion, home assignments and continuous assessment.
