LEVEL 02 - Years 2, 3 in Modular Undergraduate Course

 
ECTS CREDITS 2

 
DEPARTMENT Maltese

 
DESCRIPTION Il-kors idur madwar il-kelma bħala unità fundamentali fl-istruttura tal-lingwa. Wara li nagħtu definizzjoni formali tal-kelma fil-Malti, naraw li l-kliem mhux maqtugħ għalih waħdu, imma qiegħed f’xibka ta’ relazzjonijiet mal-bqija tal-lessiku. Inħarsu lejn il-metodoloġiji ewlenin tas-semantika lessikali; jiġifieri

(i) ix-xebh semantiku inawgurat minn Jost Trier li fuqu hi msejsa l-analiżi tal-oqsma semantiċi,
(ii) ir-relazzjonijiet lessikali (is-sinonimija, l-antonimija, eċċ.) li għażilhom sistematikament għall-ewwel darba John Lyons, u
(iii) ir-relazzjonijiet lessikali sintagmatiċi ta’ Walter Porzig, l-aktar il-kollokazzjoni.
