Projects and academic activities
During the time of the program, MA students form small teams of four to six people to carry out a co-operative two-year project. (In some cases, individual projects may also be envisaged.) The MA thesis may but does not have to be based on the results of this project. The project is lead by one of the senior researchers at School of Linguistics and implies true research activities, eventually leading to joint publications and reading papers at various academic events.
Linguistic theory and description projects:
- fieldwork, including minority languages, Russian dialects, field sociolinguistic
- typology, including sample typology, intragenetic typology, corpus-based typology
- experimental linguistics, including psycholinguistic research on Russian and eye-tracking (together with the Center for Language and Brain)
- research in Russian grammar, including corpus-driven studies, history of language, Russian lexicology etc.
and other projects suggested by the students themselves.
