Language & Stylistics

Studies in Language and Sylistics

Designed to develop oral and written proficiency at the advanced level, this course meets daily for two hours: one hour dedicated to the study of morphological and syntactic patterns and structures, and one hour to oral expression. Through the analysis of different language sectors (i.e. journalism, business, sports, contemporary jargon) in class, the students will gain a better understanding of the Italian language in its various uses. The aim of this course is also to help the students find their own Italian voice while speaking and writing. This endeavor requires daily practice and particular attention to problems of stylistics. (Two hours).

* Note: This course is obligatory for all first-time graduate students except those
exempted on the basis of a placement examination. Students scoring low on the placement test are be required to take 3407 without graduate credit and cannot apply to the Florence Program in Italy.
