General description

Description of Lecturer Kaunisto's seminar

In this BA seminar, students are welcome to examine topics relating to
the study of different facets of the English language. Topics
involving the study of authentic language data (e.g. electronic
corpora or dictionaries) are particularly recommended, but generally
all types of language-related research questions and methodological
approaches are welcome.

In seminar papers dealing with vocabulary, it is possible to concentrate either on Present-day English or on chronological developments in English vocabulary/dictionaries.
