Semester Frühjahrsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Simona Nisticò (simona.nistico@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 By the end of the term, students...
- know some of the ways in which language varies in social contexts, and how language shapes and in turn is itself shaped by interactions.
- will have learned about and practiced the planning of a basic research project and meaningful empirical data collection
- will have written up a fieldwork project and reflected on their work.
- will have sharpened their analytical skills in critical reading
- will have improved their understanding of research methodology
