Aims, contents and method of the course

The course aims to strengthen and deepen the understaning of major language structures and typological peculiarites of Slavic languages, and foster the competence of comparing with other related and unrelated languages, as e.g. those in contact. Furthermore, convergences and divergences in language development will be addressed. The aims should be achieved through anchored discussions of prepared topics.
