Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course prepares students for doing research work in linguistics and presenting its results in an academic community. The course gives students a clear idea of the structure of linguistic research, its theory and methodological basis, the population and hierarchy of the methods used, and principles of practical material selection. The course also seeks to give practical application to the knowledge obtained from the basic linguistic disciplines. As the final paper is written and presented in English, the students are familiarised with procedures, models and principles of academic writing, various aspects of rhetoric and composition, conventions of academic communication, etc. Among the “can dos” we aim to achieve are: •The ability to work in a research team •The effective use of technologies of generating ides •Well-developed skills of creating coherent and logically organised texts of various genres (analytical reviews, articles, reports, course paper synopsis, etc.) •The ability to critically evaluate texts from the point of view of their academic literacy •The ability to detect and correct complex syntactic and logical errors •The ability to participate in academic debates •The ability to deliver efficient presentations
