They should be able to listen to and understand oral material, and read and understand texts of appropriate level of difficulty. Students will be trained to use the dictionary to good effect (spelling, pronunciation, derivatives, etc.)

  E206                    Morphology and Vocabulary Studies          3 Weekly hours

 

 

This course provides a general introduction to the theory of morphology, concentrating on the core issues and phenomena that drive morphological research.

Approaches to morpheme distribution generally divide into lexical and syntactic. Recent accounts of allomorphy include rules or constraints, listing allomorphs. and output-output correspondences between fully derived and inflected surface forms of words. Issues to be addressed include differences between derivational and inflectional morphology, realization (late insertion) vs. lexica list or incremental accounts of word structure.

English 308:                           Semantics                                  3 Weekly hours                                                                                                     

 

Semantics is the study of meaning. It is a wide subject within the general study of language. An understanding of semantics is essential to the study of language acquisition (how language users acquire a sense of meaning, as speakers and writers, listeners and readers) and of language change (how meanings alter over time). It is important for understanding language in social contexts, as these are likely to affect meaning, and for understanding varieties of English and effects of style. It is thus one of the most fundamental concepts in linguistics. The study of semantics includes the study of how meaning is constructed, interpreted, clarified, obscured, illustrated, simplified negotiated, contradicted and paraphrased.

Some important areas of semantic theory or related subjects include these:

  • Symbol and referent
  • Conceptions of meaning
  • Words and lexemes
  • Denotation, connotation, implication
  • Pragmatics
  • Ambiguity
  • Metaphor, simile and symbol
  • Semantic fields
  • Synonym, antonym and hyponym
  • Collocation, fixed expression and idiom
  • Semantic change and etymology
  • Polysemy
  • Homonymy, homophones and homographs
  • Lexicology and lexicography
  • Thesauruses, libraries and Web portals
  • Epistemology
  • Colour
