This course allows the student to acquire the basic concepts and a basic understanding of the theoretical challenges in semantics and L1/L2 acquisition. It provides the optimal basis for (under)graduate courses in semantics and acquisition. Days 1 through 3 are devoted to the study of acquisition theories as well as the basics of (formal) semantics. Days 4 and 5 bring together the two parts of the course by zooming in on semantic case studies in L1 and L2 acquisition. Students will be notified approximately two weeks before the course about the required readings and are expected to participate in class/group discussions.
This course is offered by the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS, the home of linguistic and communications research at Utrecht University.
This course is part of the preparations for entrance into the RMA Linguistics at Utrecht University.
