Acerca del Curso

The aim of the course is to obtain the idea of the lexicon as a complex system and to get the methodology of the typological approach to the lexicon cross-linguistically, as well as to learn about the general mechanisms of semantic shift and their typological relevance. By the end of the course the students should know the basic principles of lexical organization, the main parameters of semantic variations in lexicon, and be able to apply the basic methods of the analysis of lexical meaning to different lexical domains. The course is designed for students of linguistic programs (BA, MA, PhD), as well as for teachers and researchers in the named field. The course contains the overview of different approaches to the semantic description of lexical items and lexical systems in different languages and discusses the methodology of Moscow Lexical Typology Group (lecture 1). This methodology (“frame approach”) is illustrated with the data of the following domains: aquamotion verbs (lecture 2), verbs of falling (lecture 3), adjectives denoting oldness (lecture 4) and pain metaphors (lecture 5 and 6). The results of the analyses are visualized with specially constructed lexical semantic maps. Do you have technical problems? Write to us: coursera@hse.ru...

I am an hipanic linguistic graduate student and I have never studied this topic until now. It is fascinating. I learned more than I thought I was about to learn and now that I have knowleadge in this subject I want to study more and more. I hope one day I can meet this amazing team of lexical investigators and maybe join you. Thank you for this brilliant course, I truly loved it.

The professor is very enthusiastic and presents the material in a very interesting way. However, when it comes to homework assignments, I noted that both I and most of the students whose work I reviewed had only a vague understanding, at times, of precisely what was expected in our submissions, and what were the correct responses.

This course definitely ranks among the best I have taken. The material is challenging, the assignments are rigorous and the lectures are very well structured. The explanation is clear which makes this course a stimulating and rich experience. I thoroughly enjoyed taking it.

Course in not well organized and hard to do assignments and grade others. There is no way to unenroll in the course so if you decide these are issues you can't get rid of the course either.
