Dr Luna Filipovic
This is a course that is delivered over five sessions, each session lasting two hours, with an inclusive ten hours of consultation time offered by appointment by Dr Filipovic. The course will be a mix of interactive instruction, inductive and deductive analysis of examples and sample texts, quantitative and qualitative data processing; individual and group practical work.
The course welcomes participants working with English only, as well as English plus any other language. All the language-specific material is easy to extend and apply to other languages, but the examples will be particularly chosen from following language families and languages: Slavic (Russian, Polish, Czech, Serbian, Croatian, Bulgarian), Romance (French, Spanish, Italian and Romanian), Germanic (English, German, Dutch, Scandinavian languages), Mandarin Chinese, Turkish and Greek. We also tend to adjust materials depending on the languages of the attendees so that everybody understands the points through examples they can follow easily. The only condition is interest in the subject matter. Knowledge of more than one language in addition to English is an advantage but not essential.
