Learning Objectives

The course offers linguistic and grammatical reflections on Russian verbs (level A2). This module will concentrate on the classification of productive and non-productive verbs and relative conjugations; the study of affixes and the changes these produce in verbs in relation to aspect. Particular attention will focus on verbs of motion, both with and without a prefix.

Program

The grammatical categories of the Russian verb

Productive, non-productive and classless verbs 

Consonant and vowel alternation

Formation of aspect pairs

Only imperfective and only perfective verbs

General rules for prefixes on verbs

Verbs of motion without prefix

Verbs of motion with prefix

Meanings of prefixes (po-, pri-, u-, v-, vy-, do-, c-, raz-).

Semantics of aspect II

Some meanings and uses of the imperfective

·  Action in progress

·  Realisation that the action has been concluded

·  Repetition of the action

·  With the verbs: načtion of inat’- načat, končat’- končit’, prodolžat

·  The ability to complete an action

Some meanings and uses of the perfective:

  • The result of the action
  • single actions
  • an action performed within a certain time lapse
  • Potential realisation of an action

·  Negation expressing an action failing to produce a result

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: Students acquire the basic notions of morphology and semantics of the Russian verb (level A2).

Applied knowledge and understanding skills: Students will learn to use the notions acquired in reading and grammar analysis of elementary texts (level A2). This objective will be pursued through lectures, reflection and language exercises.

Autonomy of judgment: Students will be able to judge the syntactic and lexical correctness of the simple proposition (level A2); in particular, they will be able to assess the impact of the rules of the Russian verbal system on utterances and grasp the differences between Russian and Italian.

Communication skills: Students will be able to communicate in Russian at elementary level (level A2).

Learning skills: Students acquire the basic tools and concepts to undertake research on grammatical and lexical aspects of the Russian language.

Assessment

Oral and written exams and language test.

The final exam will assess metalinguistic knowledge and language skills at the required level. In particular, assessment will test the following skills: writing (33% of all marks), oral (33%), and metalinguistic knowledge (33%).

The metalinguistic exam (“monographic course”) is a written test. It consists of 30 multiple choice  questions in Italian, principally to assess both acquired knowledge and applied comprehension skills. The use of dictionaries is not permitted during this test. Criteria for the assessment of the test are:

- pertinence and correctness of answers in relation to contents of program.

- ability to apply knowledge to specific cases

- ability to reflect critically on concepts and processes

- knowledge of the metalanguage

Any mark for the “monographic” course below 18/30 is not a pass.
