English-Slovene Contrastive Grammar 2:
Seminar work helps students upgrade their grammatical competences gained during the first two years of the cycle, on the basis of the knowledge from the lectures on the contrastive grammar between English and Slovene. Students gain familiarity with the translation-relevant contrastive analysis methods and topics: noun-oriented tendency in English, aspectuality, indirect discourse, passive voice, (in)animate subject, non-finite verb forms, discourse-relevant translation strategies with proper names. Students study the contrastive topics for their frequency and their specific features within specific translation-relevant types of discourse.
