Description

Fortsättningskursen i lingvistik ges varje vårtermin. Den innehåller fördjupningar inom några centrala delar av lingvistik, och målet är att du ska kunna inta en självständig hållning till lingvistisk teoribildning och kunna följa och bedöma olika teorier på empirisk grund. Fokus är på de mest centrala delarna av fonetik (hur talet produceras och uppfattas, olika språkljud, intonation, betoning osv) och allmän språkvetenskap (kopplingen mellan betydelse och form via fonologi, pragmatik, semantik och grammatik) i språkbearbetningsprocessen hos språkanvändaren och i ett urval av världens språk. Under kursen får du även en inblick i lingvistikens historia.

Kursen består av fyra delkurser 1. Speech acoustics, perception and prosody 7,5hp, 2. Grammar – the mechanics of language 7,5hp, 3. Semantik och pragmatik 7,5hp och 4. Perspectives on segmental and prosodic phonology, 7,5hp. Undervisningsspråk för alla kurser är engelska.

 

Kursens placering

Studieämnet lingvistik kan läsas som fristående kurser från grundkurs till kandidatkurs (1–90 hp) och kan utgöra huvudområde i examen på grundnivå (Filosofie kandidatexamen 180 hp). På kandidatterminen (tredje terminen) väljer du mellan inriktningarna Allmän språkvetenskap och Fonetik.

Utbildning i lingvistik finns även på avancerad nivå inom Masterprogrammet i språk och språkvetenskap.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
