The students will focus on wider diachronous aspects of linguistic research, will concentrate upon a more complicated level of syntax and stylistics; in literary criticism they will get a deeper insight into the methodology of literary scholarship and the awareness of a wider context of Slavonic literatures and the place of Macedonian literature in it.
