Module assignments


This course (Übung) constitutes a second part option for the "Grammar in Context"-module (EAS-2411), please choose a corresponding seminar to complete the module.
This course offers a thorough introduction to basic phenomena and concepts of morphology (e.,g. inflexion, derivation, reduplication, compounding, productivity, etc.) and word formation (clippings, blends, acronyms, conversion, etc.). The following guiding questions will take centre stage in this process:
Which structural rules & regularities inform word formation processes?

Are words common only in certain contexts, are they used by certain social groups or people? How do cognitive concepts arise from linguistic forms and expressions; what does morphology and word word formation reveal about the way we think? How can we apply morphological phenomena (past tense –ed) to designate specific text types like descriptive, narrative or instructive texts?

Note that this course is designed to enable students to reflect on and talk about their morphological problem solving strategies in class. While we will address and discuss theoretical issues, the main part of this course is dedicated to morphological analyses conducted by students in class.
