Program

Introduction to contemporary German phraseology

In the strictest sense, phraseology is a field of investigation involving the study of a set of fixed expressions. Typically, these are idiomatic expressions such as bei jemandem einen Stein im Brett haben, einen Bock schießen, kein Land (mehr) sehen, and other types of multiword lexical units in which the meaning of the expression does not derive from the meaning of the elements that make up the expression. More precisely, phraseological units are characterised by different degrees of fixity, semantic stability and metaphorical meaning, and from a textual point of view they can have an emphatic or intensifying function, amongst others. The relative formal variability and the graduality in their motivation make the criterion of non-compositionality of the phrasing units’ meaning less stringent, especially given the fact that motivation can be performed on both an etymological basis and in light of metaphorical and metonymic processes.
In addition to the analysis of phraseological phenomena in the strictest sense, for which some classifications are also provided in function of the resulting primary or secondary category, particular importance will be given to collocations—lexical phenomena considered somewhere between idiomatic expressions, whose syntagmatic rigidity they do not share, and free combinations, with respect to which they are more greatly restricted. Collocations, for example eine herbe Enttäuschung, sich die Zähne putzen, eine Entscheidung treffen, Medikamente einnehmen, heikle Frage, hoher Verlust, may be semi-compositional or compositional. A particular type of collocation is the support verb construction, i.e., a construction in which the verb has no predicate function but serves as a support for the noun, which is, however, a predicate. A broad description of this phenomenon will also be given at the comparative level.

Course language: German.
Teaching method: frontal teaching, flipped classroom.

Examination Methods

The exam is written (a short ‘tesina’, 1/2 of the final grade), and oral (presentation, 1/2 of the final grade). Since it is foreseen that during the course students give a presentation and that at the end of the course they write a paper on subjects given by the Professor, the students who do not attend classes regularly must agree with the Professor on the paper to be written and presented at the beginning of the oral exam. Students are admitted to exams only after completing their C2 level of language competence.

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!


Stage e tirocini

Le attività di stage sono finalizzate a far acquisire allo studente una conoscenza diretta in settori di particolare interesse per l’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro e per l’acquisizione di abilità professionali specifiche.
Le attività di stage sono svolte sotto la diretta responsabilità di un singolo docente presso studi professionali, enti della pubblica amministrazione, aziende accreditate dall’Ateneo veronese.
I crediti maturati in seguito ad attività di stage saranno attribuiti secondo quanto disposto nel dettaglio dal “Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari” vigente.
Tutte le informazioni in merito agli stage sono reperibili al link https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.
