Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this seminar, linguistic issues in the West Slavic languages will be analyzed with the repertoire of methods from historical sociolinguistics. Among other things, language contact phenomena between the individual West Slavic languages or with West Slavic languages can be worked out, including German and Hungarian.
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 seminar paper (approx. 25 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 June 30th, 2019, but must be handed in by September 30th, 2019 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 seminar paper (approx. 25 pages whereby 1 standard page = 1800 characters including spaces). For the seminar paper (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 historical sociolinguistics and, if applicable, of the covered linguistic phenomena in the individual West Slavic languages with the inclusion of German and Hungarian.

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.
