Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The nature of lexical knowledge, its characteristics and organization, as well as the way it is stored and recalled, form an important part of ongoing research in the areas of cognitive linguistics, SLA and foreign language teaching. In this course, we will explore and discuss selected insights gained in these fields. Topics will thus include research into the development of the (second language) mental lexicon, specific issues related to the memorization, storage and recall of vocabulary, as well the application of vocabulary learning theories in language teaching.

Assessment and permitted materials

class participation, assignments, presentation, mini-paper.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

In this course, students will gain specialized knowledge in the area of the (L2) mental lexicon. Furthermore, students are encouraged to reflect critically on the relevance of theoretical and empirical insights for language learning and teaching.
