METALINGUISTIC (IN)COMPETENCE IN GRADUATES FROM THE LITERATURE FACULTY A three-year degree in Literature is not sufficient to guarantee knowledge about basic grammar like the parts of speech or basic aspects of linguistic theory for university graduates. These are the unsatisfactory, confused, wrong results of a questionnaire on metalinguistics administered to 19 graduates. Passive sentences or interrogatives are mistakenly identified due to word order, deixis is unfamiliar, and phonetics and phonology are mixed up… Problems effecting university didactics are brought to light, especially regarding degree courses for teachers. Those who wish to become Italian language (or another language) teachers should have more solid, ample and u-to-date training on grammar and linguistics, the only way for them to them to be capable of teaching language in school settings.
