LING4172 – Linguistics specialization F
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
The academic theme of this course changes from semester to semester, but all specializations provide students with deeper knowledge of the fundamentals of recent linguistic research. This may for example involve various aspects of leading theories in cognitive grammar, construction grammar, generative grammar, and sometimes more or less specialized linguistic research fields (which can be studied under several theoretical approaches), such as argument structure, diachronic linguistics, grammaticalization, pragmatics, psycholinguistics, conversation analysis, language acquisition, linguistic typology, sociolinguistics or bilingualism.
As a student of such a specialization course you will be introduced to a general theoretical framework that constitutes a relevant approach to linguistic research as well as to more specialized domains which you will be able to grasp more comprehensively. In addition to providing you with a theoretical foundation for linguistic analysis, the course will help you learn to apply the theoretical concepts to work towards your own thesis.
The minimum number of attendants for the course is 5.
10 double lectures
The final grade is based on a portfolio consisting of two 5-page assignments.
