Phraseology

This course is part of the programme:
Bachelor's study programme Slovene Studies (1st Level)

Objectives and competences

The main goal of this course is to educate the students with respect to the core principles of phraseology and its proper placement within linguistics. Students are taught to discern phraseology from other subfields (lexicology, syntax, text linguistics) through the study of properties of individual phraseological units. They should be familiar with the typology of various phraseological units (nominal, adjectival, verbal, adverbal, pragmatic idiom etc.) With the aim of educating the students in the basics of lexicography, they learn about the ways phraseology can enter dictionaries and the ways it is presented there.
