RESEARCH PROJECTS CARRIED OUT IN 2012

Projects Supported by the University Budget

Germanic and Romance Literary and Cultural Texts. Prof. R. Rudaitytė. 2010–2015.

The Department (in cooperation with the Departments of French and German Philology as well as the Scandinavian Study Centre) has been carrying out investigation of literary trends, genres and problems of poetics, the development of literary traditions, the relationship of literary texts with Philosophy, Aesthetics, Psychology, Sociology and other theoretical systems. Some of the academic staff have been continually doing research in the field of the history of Germanic literatures and literatures in Romance languages and publishing articles on the related issues.

Germanic, Romance and Baltic Language Studies. Prof. A. Usonienė. 2010–2017.

The linguists of the Department are carrying out the research in close collaboration with their colleagues of the Departments of German Philology, the Lithuanian Language and the Centre of Scandinavian Studies. The focus of the research is on the synchronic and diachronic analysis of language-specific features characteristic of the grammatical, lexical and semantic structure of the languages under study. The range of research methods used and theoretical approaches followed varies greatly: from purely descriptive to functional, from cognitive to socio-linguistic, from quantitative to qualitative analysis of authentic language data.

Investigations of Germanic, Romance and Lithuanian Languages. Prof. A. Usonienė. 2010–2017.

The German Department participates in this project together with other departments dealing with Germanic Languages. Research in this project ranges from theoretical linguistics to applied linguistics; many investigators use a contrastive approach (between German and Lithuanian) or focus solely on the German language. In 2012, the members of the Department of German Philology prepared and published five articles. The German publisher Tectum in Marburg issued the doctoral dissertation of D. Katinas Zur Position und Methodik der kontrastiven Lexikologie. Eine Untersuchung am Beispiel des lexikalischen Feldes “Relief” im Litauischen und im Deutschen. The members of the Department delivered eleven presentations at national and international conferences in Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and Norway.

Germanic, Romanic Literary and Cultural Texts. Prof. R. Rudaitytė. 2010–2015.

The project devises tests and documents as language teaching method. The method puts into practice the didactical concept of interactive teaching, with the goal of learning through teaching. This enables learners from higher educational establishments and further vocational training to analyse authentic text material using professional language software, to structure the results by working together and in response to requirements, and to make these results accessible to other learners and vocational users.
