Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Within the framework of this seminar, linguistic phenomena for the Central European region resulting from multilingualism in the past and present can be worked on and presented using the repertoire of methods of Slavic linguistics at selected language levels or in selected contexts.
Seminars have the character of conversation courses with continuous assessment. In addition, they enable a thorough discussion of exemplary topics and individual scientific work. The aim is to deepen the previously acquired knowledge of Slavic linguistics, including questions of the current scientific discourse, as well as the professional presentation of research results, both verbally and in writing.

Assessment and permitted materials

In courses with continuous assessment students have to complete several oral and/or written requirements.This involves active personal contributions (discussion, content-relevant participation, compulsory attendance, homework), the professional presentation of a scientific topic (in about 30 minutes) as well as the composition of an individual bachelor thesis (approx. 30–35 pages whereby 1 standard page = 1800 characters including spaces). In order to ensure good scientific practice, the course lecturer can provide for an oral reflection of the seminar paper submitted, which is relevant for the final assessment. The paper itself must be completed by January 31st, 2020, but must be handed in by March 31st, 2020 at the latest.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

For passing the class, students are required to contribute actively to the course (discussion, content-relevant participation, homework, compulsory attendance), to present a paper (in about 30 minutes; in the case of her or his being prevented, the student must submit the presentation in written form and introduce it in one of the following classes) and to write a bachelor thesis (approx. 30–35 pages whereby 1 standard page = 1800 characters including spaces). For the bachelor thesis (incl. oral reflection, if necessary) 50 points are awarded, for the presentation 30 points. In addition, 20 points are awarded for the individual active contribution to the course. For passing the class, at least more than half of the total amount of possible points must be achieved. The other half can be divided into four quarters, from each of which the final grade is calculated.

Examination topics

The exam content consists of the linguistic issues analyzed or presented by means of a repertoire of methods from Slavic linguistics as well as of the linguistic phenomena in the Central European area resulting from the multilingualism existing here in the past and present.

Reading list

For the course, appropriate documents are made available electronically via the Moodle platform. Literature for the preparation of the individual presentations and the composition of the papers is to be consulted on a topic-specific basis. Useful hints can be found in the provided documents or in the publications that will be mentioned in the respective course units.
