LV-Beschreibung

Lehrmethodik

lectures, discussions, oral and written tasks

Inhalt/e

Idioms are an important factor in native-like discourse by speakers of English as a foreign language. Yet, idiomatic expressions are considered difficult to teach because they often contain unpredictable meanings, grammar and collocations, and have special connotations (Cacciari 1993; Moon 1995; Abisamra 2002). Traditional methods that focus on rote learning and memorization have been criticized for treating idioms as isolated entities, without systematic arrangements and authentic circumstances. Current research thus seeks to put idiomatic expressions in a more meaningful learning context for foreign language (L2) learners. 

In this course, we will explore, from a cognitive-linguistic perspective, how idioms are processed and understood. We will investigate what factors might help or hinder the  comprehension and retention of idiomatic expressions and explore how unfamiliar idioms may be successfully taught to second-language learners.

Literatur

- A guide to relevant literature will be discussed in the first sessions

- Some readings and other class material will be made available on Moodle
