Proseminar Linguistics (Language and religion)

Seminar, SWS: 2, lecture number: 41183


Donnerstag, 12-14;


Eric Anchimbe

This course is concerned with several aspects of religious language both across religions and cultures. Using religious texts and church sermons, attention will be on lexical, semantic, and pragmatic choices and their intended effects on followers. We will also examine the place of religious texts in language change, language elaboration and standardisation, especially through the translation of such sacred texts, e.g. the Bible.

Given the current situation, this course will probably be given digitally. Please get in touch with the lecturer as soon as possible and, where applicable, register in E-Learning and CampusOnline.
