Bachelor’s Programme in Languages.

Spanish Philology.

Only for students of Spanish Philology.

After completing this course, the student will be able to understand:

-the pragmatic dimension of language in relation to other levels of linguistic analysis;

-the basic principles of pragmatics as applied to Spanish;

-the relevant theories and their contributions to the development of the discipline of pragmatics;

After completing this course, the student will be able to recognize and analise:

-pragmatic phenomena in everyday communication, mainly colloquial conversations;

-how language is manipulated to convey different types of meaning;

-how language users achieve their goals in verbal interaction with others.

It is recommended after having completed the courses included as “kielitaito” and “kielitiede” in Basic Studies. The course will be offered in the autumn if possible in two periods (14 lessons x 2 h).

The course will start with a presentation of Pragmatics as a linguistic discipline and a reflection about communication from a pragmatic viewpoint. Some relevant notions related to its theoretical and methodological bases (speech act theory, conversational maxims, relevance theory, etc.) will be reviewed. The core focus of the course will be on applied pragmatics (for instance, deictic expressions, politeness, attenuation, word order, subjectivity vs. objectivity, etc.). In most cases, colloquial conversation will be taken as the situational context to analyse pragmatic categories.
