À propos du cours

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...

So far it has been great but I made the mistake of enrolling in it since it's too advanced for me

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.

I recommend this fantastic course. It is absolutely clear, well structured, interesting and at the same time it is state of the art. Also, I have the pleasure and privilege to having met Professor Ekaterina V. Rakhilina, so I can say that her human quality is even greater than her academic excellence. Thank you!

This was an interesting course to be introduced to lexical-semantic frames and observe occurrences of semantic shift in languages. As a poet, I appreciated especially the metaphorical transformations of word use translated from other languages. It shows how rich and diverse the history of human thought is, and how well we preserve it in our idiomatic expressions.

The theory in the lectures is quite thick, but if you understand the gist, the tasks are quite simple, and you get to engage with online corpora and are introduced to research databases and visualizations such as Framenet. I suggest doing the tasks in a second language if you're learning one, as this is bound to feel more beneficial and exploratory. Perhaps due to enrollment numbers, it takes a while for assignments to be peer reviewed.

T​his topic and the teacher are absolutely outstanding, nevertheless I would like to suggest coursware improvements. First, I missed the modeling part of instruction. Sometimes I wasn´t sure that my assignment format was correct. Plus, I would really appreciate if the assessment rubric was more detailed. Thanks in advance, looking forward for more courses of this type.

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.
