Course objectives
1) Dr. habil. Béla Adamik (University ELTE Budapest, Hungary): Introduction to the problem of linguistic Romanisation and Latinisation of the Roman Empire
The aim of the course is to provide Latinists with a reasonably comprehensive introduction to the problem of linguistic Romanisation and Latinisation of the Roman Empire in the Imperial Age. During the course, the aspects of linguistic Romanisation and Latinisation, i.e. the spread of spoken or vulgar Latin will be addressed in the light of data in the Computerized Historical Linguistic Database of the Latin Inscriptions of the Imperial Age (LLDB, cf. http://lldb.elte.hu/) both territorially and chronologically.

The course is built from the lectures delivered by some prominent specialists in the relevant fields of study from abroad. The aims are as follows:
- to get a fuller picture of the international situation in the research in the Classical Philology and Latin Medieval Studies;
- to learn about the main trends in the fields and of the respected experts;
- to deepen students' ability to study in a foreign language.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- sum up content of individual lectures in their own words.

Other learning outcomes depend on topics of lectures and skills and knowledge required by individual lecturers.
