Semester Frühjahrsemester 2015
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Thomas Messerli (thomas.messerli@unibas.ch)
Inhalt This course is an introduction to sociolinguistic principles and methodologies, and provides exemplary case studies. The course involves the reading and understanding of key texts; practical work on samples of language data; devising a project proposal; collecting and analysing data; writing up a report. With the integration of these components we model a way to approach investigations into language that are founded on theoretical principles, conducted through specific methodologies. Thus we can arrive at insights into the role that language plays in the social and vice versa, the influence of the social on language. The sociolinguistics that we cover in the course can be broken down into three broad areas: variationist linguistics; interactional linguistics; varieties of English.
Lernziele Students will learn about the ways in which language varies in social contexts, and moreover how language shapes and in turn is itself shaped by interactions.
Students will learn how to think out a basic research project and conduct meaningful empirical data collection.
Students will learn how to write up a fieldwork project.
Literatur Students should buy the course book: Van Herk, Gerard (2012) What Is Sociolinguistics? New York: Wiley-Blackwell. ISBN: 978-1-4051-9318-4.
