FGI 1811 Proseminar ( Irina Ladusseva) 2.0 AP Kab. 420
Writing a term paper (this spring ) and graduation paper.
To get a pass : one written task ( part of introduction , thesis statement)
Term paper should be printed (20-25 pages long).
Graduation paper should be printed (50-60 pages long).
First write term paper, and choose a topic right now ( theme of term paper later will be developed into graduation paper).
Rights : we have a right to have a supervisor. Supervisor writes on the front page “Lubatud kaitsmisele”.
You need time to:
  • read the theory
  • collect material
  • regularity (1-2 hours a day deal with your paper)
    The first draft of term paper should be ready by March .
    Supervisors are:
  • Suliko Liiv ( country study , grammar , contrastive studies , methodology)
  • Liliana Skopinskaja (methodology)
  • Jaanika Marley ( foneetika , methods)
  • Ene Alas (translation, methods)
  • Paul Rüsse ( literature (Am.,Br.), methods)
  • Annika Namme (American literature, methods)
  • Irina Ladusseva (lexicology, methods, stylistics)
    Choose your topic and find a supervisor.
    Language needs to be very transparent, but do not use colloquial elements and abbreviations (e.g. I’ll, you’re). Start collecting the expressions you like (e.g. “many” → ”the abundance” etc.)
    How to elaborate a topic? – collaborate with supervisor (a topic has to be narrowed down). Background studies – who else has written about this topic (what has been already done and what else I can do here ). Papers of this kind test logical thinking .
    What is assessed:
    • the ability to collect material ( both theoretical (who has written about it) and practical ;
    • the ability to classify it (grouping ability);
    • the ability to describe the material (“some say this …, they are not wrong , but other say that ….” Etc.);
    • the ability to draw conclusions (on theoretical and practical materials);
    • your personal contribution (do something that no one has done before );
    • talking about the material (as if you are speaking to the first year studentavoid sophistication in language, that may sound unnatural). Comment on examples (from where the example is taken – how it is used – explain all).
    NB! Comments everywhere.
    You have right to:
    • Supervisor discusses and specifies the topic with you;
    • Supervisor gives a tutorial – where the supervisor sets general directions for your paper and recommends a book (source) for your study;
    • Supervisor reads your rough sketch (and if necessary checks faults);
    BUT! Supervisor does not have to correct your language.
    The talk at the defense : a kind supervisor gets together with you and makes together your talk.
    As you start reading literature – do not trust every word you see. Often we need a second opinion ( usually of your Supervisor or ask a more competent person ). Where to get second opinion – use our audience , or if writing on literature – Maailmakirjanduse õppetool.
    Bibliography: the sources you have sited in your work :
    -term paper 10-15 sources (1 page),
    -graduation paper (2 pages of sources).
    At the defense aspects that are considered are:
    • your own contribution (whether it is there and is sufficient)
    • theory (you should have at least 6-10 connected pages discussing the state of the art)
    • mechanics (the layout of the paper: font size 12, double space , etc.)
    • answering questions
    • performance (pronounce distinctly, make good impression, no language mistakes, etc.)
    • extra linguistic part (how you stand , how you speak , etc.).
    Will be checked student’s ability to classify, to describe material, to draw conclusions (e.g. you give an example and then comment on it).
    Internet sources: it is nice to have some Internet sources to show your sophistication, but not too many of them , because they are not very reliable.
    As you start reading sources – do it systematically:
    Go to library  use books , published sources (they are published so they are reliable)  use Internet at least. In library make separate card for every publication ( author , year of publication, etc.). You start reading a book: think of your own topic and make notes (take a sheet of paper for a book: in the left hand margin you indicate the page, on the right hand write a quotation you wish to use, or “in pages 10 to 12 the author analyses …. and ……”. You should use quotation marks when you take some author’s ideas , but your own comment should be without quotation marks.
    The mechanics:
    • font size 12
    • lines double spaced
    • Times New Roman
    • margins (one left side margin should be 3cm, all other (up, down, and right) 1.5 cm)
    • the page number should be in the right hind corner (upside) NB! It should be within those 1.5 cm – no special space. And no “p.” letter !
    • on the right side the text should be justified
    • title page is not numbered but it counts as a page, so the next page is number 2
    • use only white paper (not yellow
  • 80% sisust ei kuvatud. Kogu dokumendi sisu näed kui laed faili alla
