Textual and discourse competence in Russian L2: an experimental research on the acquisition of the structures of linguistic use.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Textual and discourse competence in Russian is an area which has not yet been sufficiently investigated by studies on the acquisition of Russian L2, on teaching methodology and by scholars of translation. This competence however can be systematically defined and the research aims at achieving this on the basis of existing studies and of an exploratory survey on the acquisition of language structures, involving Italian learners of Russian with various levels of language competence. The research hypothesis is that from the analysis of the acquisition of language structures the most important aspects of the linguistic structuring of information (including “unsaid” information ) will emerge in a contrastive Italian-Russian perspective. This research will be the first step towards the creation of tools for acquiring discursive-textual language competence in Italian speakers of Russian L2.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
