German Linguistics Summer Academy
August 7th - August 21st, 2015
The course on Language Change will focus on variants and invariants in grammaticalization processes. The course on Linguistic Typology will center on crosslinguistic functions (genotypes) and their language specific phenotypes. The course on intersubjectivity is devoted to linguistic techniques of coding illocutionary force, common ground and modality via epistemicity, evidentiality, and covert or unknown patterns of modality.
In the center of course is the study of variants and the exploration of the hidden pattern behind them from a diachronic and synchronic point of view.
Advanced Master and PhD students, young scientist in relevant fields of study from Japan, Poland and German Departments with an outstanding program in German linguistics.
