Text editing on normative and language variety levels:
Students deepen and consolidate their knowledge about standard language norm and its meaningful use in communication (as text-forming process), as well as its "breaking" in terms of language or textual stigma.
Special attention is paid to deepening and strengthening syntactic norms and the narrative rules in written and spoken implementation, consolidation of word formation and lexicological knowledge.
Comparison of implementation of syntactic norms (especially word order, sentence typology, use of tenses, etc.) and narrative rules of individual text styles. Word-forming, lexical and phraseological relevance in texts of different styles.
Text editing on textual level: Question of text coherence. Editing (non-)fiction texts. The concept of so called minimal adjustment.
Specific forms of editing: editing translations, editing of written texts and spoken texts made for oral presentation (eg radio text).
