The principal objective is to give students an overview of Russian
functional communicative styles and to make them familiar with their
syntactical  and semantic configurations. A focus of the class is the
analysis of the primary  sources. English translations are banned
from this course, all references are given  to the original. Texts
(R-501 collection) are available from the University Copy  Center.
Each thematical issue includes exercises, individual oral
presentations, and written summaries of the subject. For every
thematic cluster, every student  will be asked to make one formal in-
class presentation of approx. 10 mins.  length. and to produce its
written summary of approx. 4 pages length. The final grade  for the
course is cumulative.
