Semester Herbstsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster Jedes Herbstsemester
Dozierende Thomas Messerli (thomas.messerli@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This course is an introduction to the cognitive dimensions of language. It focuses on the ways people use linguistic structures to produce and construe meaning by providing an outline of the central concepts of cognitive linguistics (CL). CL describes linguistic patterns on the basis of general cognitive processes of knowledge formation; it thus offers an interesting model of how our use of words and syntactic patterns is derived from basic experiences and concepts. Socio-cognitive theories focus more closely on the dynamic and context-specific construction of meaning in language use.

The course sketches various areas of CL, such as language acquisition, cognitive semantics and pragmatics, and linguistic relativity. It provides you with the corresponding theoretical apparatus as well as some basic methods of analysis. In a next step, you will learn to apply this knowledge to the analysis of concrete linguistic data.
Lernziele - You know the fundamental theoretical concepts of CL.
- You can apply these concepts to analyses of linguistic data.
- You define and discuss a key theoretical notion in a written assignment.

Anmeldung zur Lehrveranstaltung Please sign up for this course in services.unibas.ch.
In order to ensure a good learning environment, we aim at no more than 25 students per class (3 sections). For this reason, please also sign up in this doodle: https://doodle.com/poll/uxxrbuwmqwx3wzbs

**You may only register TWICE: once for the class section of your best choice and once for a class that is already filled up beyond 25 people**

Multiple voting (more than twice) will be removed and you will be assigned a place in a class with free seats after registration has closed. Should you have not made it into one of the courses and you are only in positions after 25 (i.e. the waiting list), we guarantee that we will take you in the course with the least student numbers.

The doodle will open on August 2, 2022, 10am (CEST) and close on September 12, 2021, 2pm (CEST) in order to finalize student distribution in the week before term starts.
