Description

Grundkursen i lingvistik behandlar människans språk och ger en bred introduktion till lingvistiken.

Kursens innehåll

I kursen behandlas både språkets form och innehåll, alltifrån ljud och artikulation till meningsbyggnad och situationsberoende betydelse. Kursen tar också upp olika lingvistiska tillämpningsområden, med särskilt fokus på språkbearbetning och språklig mångfald.

I kursen ingår föreläsningar, övningar och laborationer. Du får praktisk träning i att på en grundläggande nivå formulera språkvetenskapliga forskningsfrågor, samt att samla in, analysera och jämföra språkligt material och utifrån teoretiska begrepp diskutera och värdera materialet. Kursens övergripande syfte är att ge en allsidig bild av lingvistikens olika områden och hur de samspelar.

Den första delkursen ”Människans språk: uppbyggnad och tillämpning” behandlar grundläggande kunskap om språksystemet på fonetisk, fonologisk, morfologisk, syntaktisk, semantisk och pragmatisk nivå. Den andra delkursen ”Människans språk: process och mångfald” fördjupar de grundläggande kunskaperna, och har ett särskilt fokus på talspråkets akustiska aspekter, språkinlärning, språkbearbetning i tal och skrift och variation bland världens språk.

Kursens placering

Studieämnet lingvistik kan läsas som fristående kurser från grundkurs till kandidatkurs (1–90 hp) och kan utgöra huvudområde i examen på grundnivå (t.ex 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.

Delkurserna inom grundkursen kan även läsas som fristående kurser: ”Människans språk: uppbyggnad och tillämpning” 15 hp, ”Människans språk: process och mångfald” 15 hp. För behörighetsinformation till dessa kurser samt övrigt kursutbud i lingvistik, se översikt på institutionens hemsida.

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.
