Guest lectures

There were two guest lecturers this year:

  • Pärtel Lippus & Eva Liina Asu-Garcia (University of Tartu): “Uralic phonetic studies: state-of-the-art”
  • Santeri Junttila (University of Helsinki): “The criteria of a loanword etymology”

Evaluation

The opinion of students was assessed with the help of the EvaSys online questionnaire, supplied by the LMU Munich. The evaluation results generally suggest that the participants were highly satisfied with the workshops and lectures. In particular, students enjoyed the Komi language course and the open, cooperative atmosphere at the event. Critical remarks regarding the level of difficulty and suggestions on further topics will be considered in the course of future teaching activities, such as the upcoming Summer Workshop in Szeged and the next Winter School in Turku (2017).
