Introduction to Synchronic Linguistics Pt. 1, Gruppe 3

Weitere Gruppen der Veranstaltung

Arne Peters

This is the first part of a two-course module which lays the groundwork for all further coursework in English linguistics. It aims to introduce students to the nature of language and the major domains of linguistic inquiry as well as its basic concepts, principles and tools in the following areas: Phonetics, Phonology, Morphology and Lexical Semantics. Students will
- excerpt the relevant knowledge from course-specific online material and/or literature on the basis of guiding questions,
- test their understanding by applying their newly acquired knowledge to exercise questions,
- clarify questions in class, and
- complete assignments
in order to later be able to use these skills in the advanced linguistics courses in their BA and MA studies.

Please note that this course is offered by different instructors on different time slots every week. We also offer it in 2 different formats:

(1) instructor-guided tuition with obligatory reading before class on the basis of guiding questions so that the session content can be collected interactively in class vs.

(2) inverted-classroom format with the session content available as online material before the session, so that more of the in-class time can be used to settle questions.

Both formats offer plenty of exercises before and in class. You may choose from these what suits you best in terms of both time slots and formats.

There will be quizzes and a mock exam.

Students are encouraged to acquire a copy of the textbook (see below) before the beginning of the semester.

Tutorials (which provide you with further practice) will be announced at the beginning of the semester. It is strongly recommended that students attend one of these tutorials regularly.

We strongly recommend attending this course in parallel with part II.

This course takes place in format (1).

Please note: Currently, this course is expected to take place offline and in a synchronous mode on campus Neues Palais. However, the teaching form may be changed in accordance with the latest Covid regulations.
