Semantics Workshop PROF. SAVINA RAYNAUD [The second module of teaching syllabus borrowed from the Faculty of Arts, including the course name “Philosophy of language”] COURSE AIMS The aim of the course is to test out the effectiveness and adequacy of the theoretical skills learned during the Semantics course and further students’ understanding of the texts. COURSE CONTENT Semantic studies of texts handed out at lectures/composed at lectures based around specific topics: recognition/creation of predicative-argumentative relations, referential expressions and inferential operations, also studied along contrastive/translational lines (studies of the semantics of lexical entries and morpho-syntactic structures) within individual statements and complete texts. READING LIST Study grid (worked out on the basis of the reading list for the Semantics course) and supplementary documents handed out at the beginning of the workshop and uploaded to the Blackboard website. TEACHING METHOD The workshop is based along the lines of supervised practical work (SPW) aimed at reinforcing skills - critical and practical – connected with the relationship between data and theories. ASSESSMENT METHOD The skills learned during practical laboratory work will be assessed based on the reading and correcting of individual papers handed in at the end of the workshop. The results will be given and discussed during the examination.
