This module is aimed at students with a high command of both the German and the English language. The purpose of the module is to analyse, discuss and practise highly complex grammatical and stylistic elements emerging from the texts discussed in class. It is indispensable for students to have a highly developed competence of various grammatical points, including syntactic and lexical characteristics and metalanguage. The used material will exclusively be taken from complex authentic sources (media texts, literary texts). The module is not designed to be training for professional translators.
