Useful instructions for the thesis:   

    General Guidelines of the Faculty (in Slovak) + Thesis Supervision Guidelines + Appendix: for theses in linguistics

    When writing your thesis and research papers/seminar essays in general, avoid plagiarism -- cite your sources! Here is a quick guide to how to, and this one is an even quicker guide to citation formats. In addition, students are required to acknowledge the following on the cover page of their seminar essays:

    Hereby, I certify that the essay as a text is my production, it was written using only the basic functions of Word (or equivalent word processor), without the help of any text transforming or text generating software tool (including Quillbot, Grammarly, AI chatbots, but not excluding other similar tools), and it also conforms to international copyright and plagiarism rules and regulations.


    Choosing a topic and a supervisor for the thesis

    Students can choose any of the teachers of the department as a thesis supervisor, even the ones whose classes they have not attended, on the basis of students' interests and teachers' expertise. Below you find a list of people and topics (and more detailed personal profiles here).

    Potential thesis topics are advertised in ais2, but whether students find a theme of their liking there or not, they should contact the teacher directly, who will tell them whether they are still available for supervision, and they can also help students choose a better topic and/or find a more suitable supervisor if they feel incompetent in the topics the student mentions.
