LS-3: Vocabulary
(LS-3: Vocabulary)


Reference is made to the form, the meaning and the use of words and how to use language resources. Specifically, this module focuses on points that can cause problems in comprehension and speech production. Specifically, these problem areas have to do with the formation of words (derivatives, compounds), the metaphorical use of words, polysemous words with different meanings depending on the context, synonymous words with subtle differentiations, collocations, words denoting different levels of politeness, etc. This module also presents different ways to use dictionaries in an attempt to enhance learner autonomy.

This module is aimed at both students of Departments of Modern Greek Language abroad, and teachers who teach Greek as a foreign language. The aim of this module is their language support on vocabulary.
