Students can outline the discipline and its parts and explain its topics.

The course introduces central parts of German Linguistics by presenting the most important questions and problems, concepts and results. Its systemic character as well as its use are in focus: We examine the signesque of language (Semiotics), its sounds (Phonetics/Phonology, Graphematics), (parts of) words (Morphology, word formation), meaning (Semantics) and its usage in conversation (Pragmatics).
