Period

First half of Semester 2  dal Feb 26, 2018 al Apr 21, 2018.

The course in General Linguistics, offered for the Master Degree in Tradition and Interpretation of Literary Texts, is designed to:
• Target "consolidation". Strengthen the understanding of the foundations of linguistics, for the professional and cultural training of the figure of the teacher;
• Target "glottological reflection". Synthesize the role of the reflection on language in the history of culture and the contribution to contemporary cultural dynamics from the discipline of language study, its methods, its results, and its new perspectives;
• Target "textus". Introducing text syntax results and methods, starting from the "linguistic" concept of text to concentrate on formal and functional aspects of textuality

EXPECTATIONS
The course aims to give the student the ability of a critical use of the concepts and fundamental methods of linguistics for the cultural and professional enrichment of the figure of the intellectual of literary-historical formation.
At the end of the course the student will be able to:
• recognize linguistic methods in the analysis of literary and cultural phenomena in general;
• illustrate the basics of languistics;
• know how to apply the acquired knowledge in the course of her/his studying career and in the future.

PREREQUISITES
A knowledge of synchronic and diachronic linguistics at the introductory level is assumed.
It is advisable for those who have never undertaken any linguistic examination to consult the teacher and to use introductory handbooks.

Program

MAIN TOPICS
1. Natural language, languages, formal and functional characteristics (natural and internal principles, inter-subjective, social and communicative applications).
2. The structure of the text according to the formal and functional characteristics of language and languages.

Double Degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
