Key information

SCOTCAT credits : 30

ECTS credits : 15

Level : SCQF Level 10

Semester: 2

Planned timetable: 12.00 noon - 1.00 pm Tue and Fri

This module will deal with the different ways in which students may make use of their knowledge of Greek in order to produce both translations from English texts into grammatically correct Greek and also free compositions directly in Greek. This will involve a more active process of language learning than is required for translation from Greek into English, though it will also have benefits for the reading of original texts. The content of the module will deal with all syntactical aspects of the Greek language that need special study for effective translation into Greek: particles, participles, the treatment of abstract nouns, equivalence between English and Greek idioms, etc.
