PRESENTAZIONE

This module includes an introduction to English phonetics and phonology, word formation and lexis addressed from a cognitive and usage-based constructional approach, and a practical English language course at the B2 level.

OBIETTIVI E CONTENUTI

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI

Scopo del corso triennale è quello di porre le basi per la formazione di un traduttore e di acquisire un buon livello di competenza comunicativa nella lingua inglese. Scopo specifico del primo anno è di impadronirsi del codice a livello scientifico. Il discente dovrà quindi imparare a descrivere le strutture dell’inglese: oggetti di studio saranno la semantica, la grammatica e la fonologia. Il corso prevede anche il supporto di esercitazioni tenute da collaboratori linguistici di madrelingua inglese e traduttori, finalizzate all'apprendimento pratico della lingua a livello di base, e una introduzione alla traduzione.

OBIETTIVI FORMATIVI (DETTAGLIO) E RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO

The course focuses on English Linguistics, also from a contrastive and translation viewpoint, and places special attention to phonetics-phonology, word formation and lexis from a cognitive and usage-based constructional approach. It also aims to bring students to the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

This module aims to:

- introduce students to the scientific study of the English language, with a special focus on English phonetics, phonology, word formation and lexicon;

- develop students’ analytical skills;

- bring students to the B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. 

Modalità didattiche

The linguistics module is made up of weekly lectures (3 hours a week over 12 weeks in the second semester).

The practical module is made up of weekly classes (4 hours a week over 20 weeks, i.e. 10 weeks per semester).

Attendance is compulsory for the Practical Module (both parts) and is not compulsory but strongly recommended for the Theory Module.

Active participation on the part of students is required across modules.

 

PROGRAMMA/CONTENUTO

English Language II is divided into two parts: a one-semester linguistics module ("Theory Module "), which is held in the first semester and described in more detail below, and a two-semester practical module ("Practical Module " or "esercitazioni/lettorato"). 

Each component ("Theory Module" and " Practical Module ") is assessed separately. The Practical Module is assessed at the end of the second semester through a written exam paper (grammar, vocabulary, listening, and writing) and an oral exam. The Theory Module is assessed through a written exam paper at the end of the first semester. 

The linguistics module ("Theory Module ") is an introduction to English phonetics-phonology, word formation and lexicon from a cognitive and usage-based constructional approach. The practical language module aims to bring students to the B2 level (CEFR). More information about the practical component will be available on the Lingue website (see Rules & Regulations, Lettorati list, etc." folder in the "documenti" folder) from September.

 

The linguistics module aims to enable students to learn how to identify, describe and discuss:

  • the stock of English sounds and how they combine
  • stress and intonation 
  • pronunciation features across different varieties of English 
  • morphological constructions and productivity
  • inflectional morphology and word-formation patterns
  • the lexicon
  • the interface between morphology and phonology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics
  • contrastive and translation issues related to the levels of the English language presented during the course
