Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Aline Bieri (aline.bieri@unibas.ch)
Inhalt This course is an introduction to sociolinguistic principles and methodologies. The course involves the reading and understanding of key texts and case studies, practical work on samples of language data, devising a project proposal, collecting and analysing data and writing up a research report. With the integration of these components we model a way to approach sociolinguistic investigations into language that is founded on theoretical principles and conducted through specific methodologies. Thus we can arrive at insights into the role that language plays in the social and the influence of the social on language. The areas in sociolinguistics that we introduce in the course include: variation, interaction, and varieties of English.
Lernziele 1. To learn about the ways in which language varies in social contexts, and how language shapes and in turn is itself shaped by interactions.
2. To learn how to plan a basic research project and conduct meaningful empirical data collection.
3. To learn how to write up a fieldwork project.
4. To continue sharpening analytical skills of critical reading concerning research methodology
