 Glottologia A /Linguistica generale A

NOTA: La valutazione per il moduli di Glottologia A/Linguistica generale A avviene attraverso tre prove in itinere. Il voto viene calcolato facendo la media dei voti delle due prove migliori, e fa poi media coi voti conseguiti nei moduli di Glottologia B o Linguistica Generale B al fine di calcolare il voto finale degli esami di Glottologia o Linguistica Generale.


Non e' possibile sostenere gli esami relativi ai moduli di Glottologia B o Linguistica Generale B se prima non si e' ottenuto il voto per il modulo di Glottologia A/Linguistica generale A attraverso le prove in itinere. E' necessario sostenere almeno due su tre delle prove in itinere. Le prove in itinere si svolgeranno secondo il seguente orario:

 

Venerdi' 11 ottobre 2019, ore 9-11, Aula 7 di Giurisprudenza

Mercoledi' 30 ottobre 2019, ore 11-13, Aula Magna Sotterranea

Se si deve sostenere la prova di recupero, o se si e' studenti Erasmus, si e' pregati di mettersi comunque in contatto con la docente all'indirizzo sonia.cristofaro@unipv.it.
