Objectives
THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THE COURSE IS TO TEACH STUDENTS THE FUNDAMENTALS OF LANGUAGE, WHAT A LANGUAGE IS, HOW IT IS STRUCTURED AND WHAT ARE THE POINTS OF CONTACT AND DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DIFFERENT LANGUAGES.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
THE COURSE AIMS TO STIMULATE AND DEVELOP STUDENTS' LINGUISTIC AWARENESS. FOR THIS PURPOSE, THE COURSE AIMS TO ENSURE THAT THE STUDENT COMES TO:
- DEVELOP AN AWARENESS OF WHAT A LANGUAGE IS, HOW IT IS ORGANISED AND WHAT POINTS LANGUAGES HAVE IN COMMON AND THOSE THAT DIFFERENTIATE THEM;
- MASTER THE CONCEPTS, MODELS AND METHODS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE MODERN STUDY OF LANGUAGE;
- BE ABLE TO COMPARE THE DATA OF DIFFERENT LANGUAGES, IDENTIFYING THE COMMON ELEMENTS AND THOSE THAT DIFFERENTIATE THEM:
- MASTER THE THEORETICAL AND TECHNICAL PRINCIPLES FOR ANALYSING AND DESCRIBING LANGUAGES AT DIFFERENT LEVELS: PHONETIC, PHONOLOGICAL, MORPHOLOGICAL, SYNTACTIC, SEMANTIC AND PRAGMATIC.

ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
THE COURSE AIMS TO DEVELOP IN THE STUDENT THE ABILITY TO ORIENT HIMSELF IN THE VAST WORLD OF LINGUISTICS; IN PARTICULAR THE STUDENT WILL BE ABLE TO:
- APPLY THE THEORETICAL CONCEPTS ACQUIRED TO THE ANALYSIS OF LINGUISTIC DATA;
- COMPARE THE DATA OF DIFFERENT LANGUAGES - STARTING FROM ITALIAN - BY IDENTIFYING THE COMMON ELEMENTS AND THOSE THAT DIFFERENTIATE THEM.

AUTONOMY OF JUDGEMENT:
THE COURSE AIMS TO DEVELOP IN THE STUDENT THE ABILITY TO:
- FORMULATE HYPOTHESES, ESTABLISH LOGICAL LINKS, ARGUE, COMPARE AND EVALUATE LANGUAGES OF DIFFERENT TYPES;
- CRITICALLY SELECT SOURCES OF INFORMATION (BIBLIOGRAPHIC AND MULTIMEDIA) FOR THE COMPARATIVE STUDY OF DIFFERENT LINGUISTIC CODES;
- PLACING AND CONSIDERING LINGUISTIC PHENOMENA IN RELATION TO THE CULTURAL AND SPATIAL CONTEXTS OF REFERENCE AS WELL AS TO THEIR TEMPORAL EVOLUTION;
- BEING ABLE TO ORGANISE AND CRITICALLY EVALUATE THE COURSE CONTENT.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS
THE COURSE AIMS TO DEVELOP IN THE STUDENT THE ABILITY TO:
- MAKE APPROPRIATE USE OF THE METALANGUAGE OF THE DISCIPLINE;
- ACQUIRE AWARENESS OF LANGUAGES AS MAJOR COMMUNICATIVE TOOLS OF HUMAN COMMUNITIES;
- REPRESENT AND COMMUNICATE, BY MEANS OF TEXTS OR VIRTUAL TOOLS, THE RESULTS OF THEIR OWN RESEARCH OR ELABORATIONS.

LEARNING ABILITY
THE COURSE AIMS TO DEVELOP IN THE STUDENTS THE ABILITY TO:
- USE TRADITIONAL BIBLIOGRAPHICAL TOOLS AND COMPUTER RESOURCES FOR ANALYSIS AND ARCHIVING;
- CARRY OUT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES, UNDERSTAND AND INTERPRET COMPLEX TEXTS OF VARIOUS TYPES, LITERARY, INSTITUTIONAL, ADVERTISING, ETC.;
- CONTINUOUSLY UPDATE THEIR KNOWLEDGE, USING TECHNICAL AND SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE.
Prerequisites
KNOWLEDGE OF BASIC CONCEPTS OF ITALIAN GRAMMAR.

Teaching Methods
THIS COURSE IS OF 12 CREDITS AND CONSISTS OF 60 HOURS OF LECTURES, IN WHICH WILL BE ALTERNATED - ACCORDING TO THE DIDACTIC NEEDS - HOURS OF LECTURES AND HOURS OF EXERCISES. IN THE HOURS OF LECTURES WILL BE EXPOSED ALL THE CONTENTS OF THE COURSE, WHILE THE EXERCISES WILL BE DEDICATED TO THE CARRYING OUT OF EXERCISES NECESSARY TO CONSOLIDATE THE NOTIONS EXPOSED IN THE TEACHING HOURS AND TO TAKE THE FINAL.
STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE USE OF AN E-LEARNING SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR EXERCISES AND SELF-ASSESSMENT (A DIRECT LINK TO THE EXERCISES WILL BE PROVIDED ON THE TEACHER'S PERSONAL PAGE). THE ON-LINE MODE WILL BE SUPPLEMENTED BY MEETINGS AND TESTS WITH THE LECTURER.
Verification of learning
THE EXAM CONSISTS OF A WRITTEN TEST (LASTING TWO HOURS) DIVIDED INTO FIVE SECTIONS. THE WRITTEN TEST IS PRECEDED BY 7 BASIC QUESTIONS (TWO OF GRAMMAR AND ONE FOR EACH SECTION OF THE TEST). THE CORRECT ANSWER TO AT LEAST 5 OF THESE 7 BASIC QUESTIONS IS PRELIMINARY AND ESSENTIAL FOR THE CORRECTION OF THE TEST, SO IF YOU DO NOT ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS CORRECTLY, THE TEST IS CONSIDERED INSUFFICIENT.

THE SECTIONS OF THE WRITTEN TEST ARE STRUCTURED AS FOLLOWS:

1) GENERAL SECTION, WHICH CONTAINS QUESTIONS OF SEMIOTICS, ON WORLD LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTIC VARIABILITY;
2) PHONETICS AND PHONOLOGY;
3) MORPHOLOGY;
4) SYNTAX;
5) SEMANTICS, LEXICON AND PRAGMATICS.

EACH SECTION CONTAINS OPEN QUESTIONS AND CLOSED OR MULTIPLE QUESTIONS.
FOR EACH EXERCISE IS GIVEN THE HIGHEST RATING. THE SUM OF THE SCORES OBTAINED IN EACH APPLICATION WILL BE THE MARK OF EACH SECTION.
EACH SECTION HAS A MINIMUM SCORE THAT MUST BE REACHED: IF THIS MINIMUM SCORE IS NOT REACHED THERE WILL BE A DEDUCTION OF ONE POINT.
THE FINAL MARK WILL BE CALCULATED BY ADDING THE SCORES OBTAINED IN EACH SECTION (PLUS THE POINTS FOR PASSING THE BASIC QUESTIONS), CALCULATING POSSIBLE PENALTIES.
THE MINIMUM MARK TO PASS THE EXAM IS 18/30. THE EXAM TEST CONSISTS OF A VARIABLE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS WHOSE FINAL SCORE IS ALWAYS HIGHER THAN 40. HONOURS WILL BE AWARDED TO STUDENTS WHOSE FINAL SCORE EXCEEDS 34.
