The course is part of the core courses in the curriculum teaching the language chosen by the student. The aim of the course is to obtain level C1 of the CEFR
1. Knowledge and comprehension
- To understand complex structures of Turkish reading texts of advanced difficulty and in different special languages
- To acquire notions of sociolinguistics (in particular language policies)

2. Capacity of application
- To deliver abstracts in Turkish in academic texts
- To be able to analyze, comment and scientifically use sociolinguistic data
-- Capacity of translation, into the student's native language, of an academic Turkish text of advanced difficulty, and from the student’s native language to Turkish, of a text of intermediate difficulty.
Advanced knowledge of Turkish corresponding to level B2 (CEFR)
- Formal linguistics in the analysis of Turkish, especially of its syntax and morphology (texts in English and Turkish)
- Application of linguistic analysis to Turkish prose

Specific issues that will be examined by reading texts in Turkish:
A. Complex constructions in Turkish from the point of view of syntax and morphology (e.g. complement clauses, relative clauses)
B. Word order in the interface of syntax and discourse; the relevance of directionality

The students will choose a topic in the morphosyntax of Turkish, based on the readings and class discussions, for a paper and a presentation. The topic has to be approved by the professor.
