In recent years phraseology has become established as a discipline in its own right and come to play an important role in applied sciences such as terminology and lexicography and related scholarly fields. Focusing on research at the crossroads of phraseology, terminology and lexicography, this 3-day PhD school aims to provide candidates with a broad understanding and in-depth knowledge of the theoretical fundament for, and the methodology associated with studies in phraseology in both general and specialised language.

The course has three internationally acclaimed guest lecturers.

Participants in the course should be prepared to read a course curriculum and submit in advance a project description/draft article/chapter of PhD thesis and have their work commented on by the experts.

ECTS credits: 2.5

Lecturers: Stefan Th. Gries (University of California, Santa Barbara), Marie-Claude L'Homme (Université de Montréal), Magali Paquot (Université catholique de Louvain)
