Sociolinguistic Patterns - Researching Language Variation and Change

Arne Peters | Di 10 - 12 Uhr | Raum: 1.19.1.16 | Erste Veranstaltung: 15.10.2013

PULS

The problem of explaining language change seems to resolve itself into three separate problems: the origin of linguistic variations, the spread and propagation of linguistic changes and the regularity of linguistic change. This course will investigate into each of these problems by looking at underlying sociolinguistic theories and concepts as well as by exploring fieldwork techniques for the compilation of data sets for sociolinguistic analysis. In the first third of the semester, students will be made familiar with theories of language change and patterns of language variation. In the second third of the semester, students will learn how to enter a speech community, how to design a research sample, how to collect, store and manage data, and how to interact effectively with participants and communities. In the last third of the semester, students will be required to conduct an own fieldwork project by applying their previously acquired sociolinguistic research skills.
