Metody dydaktyczne:

Seminar: mini-lectures to expand knowledge (based on recent literature), presentation of research projects, individualized and collective instruction and feedback.

K_W07, K_W13, K_U16, K_U17, K_K01,

On-line teaching sessions will be carried out with the support of the following distance learning tools: MICROSOFT TEAMS (is the basic tool for interactive sessions), USOS will provide the students with extra instructions, mini-lectures, comments and feedback, by means of e-mails and attachments sent to particular groups. MOODLE MAY be employed OCASSIONALLY for collecting assignments (essays and worksheets) and examination tests (but ONLY if the Microsoft Teams platform turns out to be insufficient). All distance learning sessions will be carried out according to the following format: (1) TEACHER-CENTERED INPUT (20-30 minutes) by means of the teacher’s introductory mini-lecture on a particular area in question (2) STUDENT-CENTERED PROBLEM-SOLVING ACTIVITIES (30-40 minutes) regarding particular tasks (information search, negotiation of solutions, preferably pair-work and team-work (peer-teaching) (3) FEEDBACK AND INTERACTION via such techniques and Q&A (questions and answer sessions) based on collective lists of questions, individual questions and discussions. The above methods are amendable according to any changes in the ongoing situation and relevant regulations.

Skrócony opis:

The goal of the seminar GRAMMAR-MEANING INTERFACE (LANGUAGE ANALYTIC AWARENESS) is to provide the students with basic tools for the analysis of TEXTS in multiple dimensions, so as to develop the analytical awareness of the complexities of language.


Pełny opis:

• A thorough revision of terminological distinctions regarding descriptive linguistics, and also the introduction of relevant conceptual frameworks of textual analysis, linguistic pragmatics and cognitive linguistics.

• The explanation of the guiding principles concerning research methodology (scope/domain and object[s] of study, theoretical perspective[s]).

General Linguistics (1) structure-function in language (2) the semiotic sign: index, icon, symbol (3) paralanuage: kinesics/proxemics (4) language variation: social, regional... (5) speech chain (6) design features of language (7) functions of language (8) ontological & epistemological issues (9) approaches to language study: structuralism, functionalism, generativism, cognitivism (10) syntactic-semantic roles and relations: PSRules NP/VP/AP/PP... SVOOCA, Ag>Mvr>Inst/Stim>Pat/Exp>Zero (11) semantics: denotation-connotation (12) semantics: sense-reference (triangle) (13) semantics: sense relations: polysemy, homonymy, synonymy, antonymy, hyponymy... (14) pragmatics: mind-code-context and The Speech Act Theory.

Text Linguistics (1) fundamental assumptions: stucture and function, problem solving in lg (2) regulative principles: efficiency, effectiveness, appropriateness (3) constitutive principles: cohesion, coherence, intentionality, acceptability, informativity, situationality, intertextuality

Cognitive Semantics (1) Categorisation by schema (generic-specific) & by prototype (centre-periphery) (2)Cognitive Models: ICMs and CTM Cognitive Theory of Metaphor (a) propositional models, (b) image-schematic models, (c) metaphorical models: types & features, metaphorical coherences and duals, (d) metonymic models vs. metaphorical m. (3) The Invariance hypothesis (4) the Great Chain metaphor...(5)

meaning motivation and polysemy (6) axiology... (7) CIT Conceptual Integration Theory: Mental Spaces and Blends

Cognitive Grammar: (1) Symbolic units, F/G & (S>T) peripheral v. autonomous processing (2) Entities: things, atemporal relations and processes (3) domains: concepts (domain matrix) (4) construal operations/dimensions of imagery/focal adjustments “camera-work”: schematicity, prominence, scope, perspective, abstraction, selection, transformation (dynamicity-virtuality) (5) grammar as image: (‘figures in the carpet metaphor’), (6) e-sites, (7) active zones, etc.
