Course objectives
The goal of the course is to familiarize the students with more grammatical phenomena in the Czech Sign language. The lectures focus on the practice of the grammar and the basic lexicon simultaneously. The seminar TCZJ01 Language practice III is dedicated to the lexicon acquisition. The explanation of the grammar is based on the commentary of the video recordings with Czech Sign language texts.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students know how to use the respective grammatical structures in CSL and the corresponding lexicon. They understand the grammar they use and they can explain them (in Czech).
