ECTS credit:6

Lecturer(s): izr. prof. dr. Shigemori Bučar Chikako


Students learn the basics of classical Japanese grammar. The focus lies on differences between classical and modern Japanese. Students train interpreting classical works with exercises designed for this purpose. They learn about semantical elements of classical Japanese which are partially still present in modern Japanese. They train reading and grammatical analysis of some representative Japanese literary works. When reading parts of literary works students learn about their historical and cultural background.
