AFN-259 Comprehensive Examination in English Linguistics

Having successfully completed their studies in English linguistics including

  1. Introduction to English Linguistics (AFN--141)
  2. English Phonology (AFN--241)
  3. English Syntax I (AFN--243)
  4. English Syntax II lecture (AFN--245)
  5. English Syntax II seminar (AFN--246)
and all their prerequisites, students of English have to take the Comprehensive Examination in English Linguistics. The Comprehensive Examination in English Linguistics is an oral examination which is based on subjects (i), (ii), (iii), and (iv). The prerequisite for taking the Comprehensive Examination in English Linguistics is a valid mark (2--5) in all the relevant prerequisite subjects listed above.

The Comprehensive Examination in English Linguistics is an oral examination in the course of which a student (a) has to discuss three topics randomly chosen from batches of questions on introduction to linguistics, phonology, syntax; or (b) may declare her/his decision to take the Comprehensive Examination on a projected result basis. If a student takes option (b), her/his examination result will be a projected mark which is the rounded-off average of her/his valid marks in subjects (i)--(iv) listed above (failed and retaken exams should be ignored, only successful exams count; rounding off: up to 0.49 downwards, from 0.50 upwards). Naturally, if option (a) is chosen, the valid marks in the prerequisite subjects do not influence the result of the Comprehensive Examination (your mark may be better or worse than their rounded off average).

Students are asked to register for the Comprehensive Examination in English Linguistics both on the internet at etr.elte.hu and by filling a downloadable form (pdf, ps; the form is also available at the DELG office: ADS 220), making a registration statement and a declaration of intent about whether they intend to take the Comprehensive Examination on a projected result basis (option (b) above). If you select option (a), i.e., you do not wish to get a mark on a projected result basis, please submit the form at least a day before the examination.
