Università della Svizzera Italiana, Lugano (Project Leader),
Basle, Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich Universities
The objective of SWISSLING is to coordinate the study of linguistics in Switzerland's three major language regions. It is designed as an introductory course for first- and second-year students of humanities (linguistics, communication sciences, languages and literature).
The course is organised in 12 modules, to take account of the considerable differences in the structure and duration of linguistic studies at Swiss universities. Each module corresponds to a basic theme addressed in linguistics, such as phonetics, syntax and text analysis. Modules can be used selectively as required.
SWISSLING is offered in three of Switzerland's national languages (Italian, French and German) and English.
