The course intends to inform the students about, and to sensibilize them towards, selected (theoretical and practical) aspects of the morfological, syntactic and textlinguistic analysis of the Italian contemporary language, and to enable them to deal with a specific linguistic topic on the basis of scientific methods.

The course focusses particularly on the linguistic subfields of morphology, syntax and textlinguistics (both constitutive phenomena of textual structure in general and of different text genres in specific). The introductory lessons provide an overview of general morfological, syntactic and textlinguistic concepts. The course refers primarily to the standard Italian language, with possible considerations of pragmatic aspects or traits of the spoken language. A detailed program will be handed out at the beginning of the course.

• Introductory part: The first lessons are intended for the introduction to the course topics on the part of the professor; mainly ex-cathedra teaching, with discussions, exercises and group work; various e-learning activities and discussions on the OLAT online platform.

• Oral presentations on the part of the students: In the lessons following the introductory part, students will give their presentations dealing with selected topics; individual or group work, always with discussion and preferably also with examples and specific exercises.

• Term paper (= elaboration of the oral presentation, only for 648): 12-15 pages, individual work

or small reading list (for 466)

Oral presentation, term paper (= written elaboration of the topic dealt with in the oral presentation, onlz for 648) or reading list (for 466), active participation during the lessons, homework and ev. participation in the discussions on the OLAT online platform, final exam.
