Fall 2017 Topics and Seminar Class Descriptions

LING 490/590 Methods in Language Research

This online seminar aims to provide students with a broad overview of research methods and approaches used to explore and describe language and human interaction. The course centers on the Research Proposal, with students planning and designing research projects informed by the literature and their own research questions. The steps taken in developing student proposals are aimed at solidifying an understanding of how:

  • philosophical orientation determines research design.
  • scientists develop research questions or hypotheses to guide their research.
  • researchers select appropriate data collection methods to answer their questions or test hypotheses. 

In addition, students will develop specific skills relevant to becoming competent researchers, including:

  • selecting a research topic.
  • conducting an exhaustive literature review on the chosen topic.
  • developing a research proposal to respond to gaps in the research.

Over the course of the semester, they will also critique research articles; explore research ethics and human subjects considerations; and learn about different approaches to data collection and analysis.

 Course Objectives:

 In this course, students will learn to: 

  1. Define scientific inquiry, and fundamental philosophical frameworks
  2. Describe the differences between quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods research, including the types of questions they aim to answer
  3. Develop research questions and/or hypotheses
  4. Identify and describe the purpose of the main sections of a research article
  5. List reputable research journals and databases, and use them appropriately
  6. Identify the strengths and weaknesses of published research
  7. Conduct the necessary background work for writing an exhaustive literature review 
  8. Describe the main ethical responsibilities of researchers in the collection, management, and reporting of data, and the steps for ensuring the protection of human participants in research studies
  9. Identify and describe the purpose of the main sections of a research proposal
  10. Write a research proposal based on their own research questions

 LING 490/PSY 450 Language Acquisition

Language is an incredibly complex system of knowledge, with multiple levels of representation—sounds and words and phrases and meanings. We are often unaware of how much we need to know in order to be able to communicate with language, and one of the most fascinating things about language is that normally-developing children easily learn their native language, especially when compared to adults trying to learn a second language, despite the more mature cognitive skills of the latter. Children are somehow suited for language acquisition in a way that adults are not.

In this course, we will discuss the broad topic of language acquisition, focusing on what infants and young children know about language at different ages, and what kinds of theories might explain these data. In addition, the course will provide in-depth discussions of language development in special populations, childhood bilingualism, and second language acquisition in adults. 

Topics will include: biological bases of language development; phonological and lexical development; development of syntax and morphology; childhood bilingualism; second-language acquisition; language development in special populations.

 > Course Objectives 

 Students will learn key aspects of:

  • Major theoretical approaches to language acquisition
  • Scientific/interpretative methods used for studying language acquisition
  • Brain structures and neural processes associated with language development
  • Social influences on children’s language development
  • Bilingualism and second-language acquisition

Spring 2017 Topics and Seminar Class Descriptions

LING 490/590 Introduction to Old English

Hwæt! In this class, we will return to the earliest recorded form of English and read some of the oldest literature ever written in the language. We will read of a divinely inspired cowherd, a cross-dressing saint, a wandering exile, and other texts, all in the original Old English. No prior knowledge of Old English is required.

LING 490/590 Pragmatics

Discourse analysis and pragmatics both focus on the study of language use in real contexts, such as conversation and narrative. This class will be an exploration of how people tell stories, with a focus on conversational narrative. We will explore approaches that attempt to account for the interplay of linguistic structure and language use. By analyzing narrative discourse data, we will look at the different ways we use language to negotiate meaning and reality with one another, both in local interactions and in the larger social and cultural arenas. We will learn how to elicit, transcribe, and code discourse data in order to analyse the structure and content of narratives. We will investigate the range of ways that speakers in different discourse communities have to construct and project identity, how they engage with an audience, and how they organize a narrative and achieve coherence. Class readings will focus on a wide range of topics, including transcription methods, discourse structure, collaboration and negotiation in interaction, pragmatic and politeness conventions, constructing identity, and maintaining power. The course will be co-taught by Dawn Nordquist and Melissa Axelrod.

LING 590/433 Sociolinguistic Variation

Linguistic variability in relation to social status and situational context, attitudinal correlates of language stratification and sociolinguistic change in progress. Prerequisite: (301 or SPAN 351) and (302 or 303 or SHS *303 or SPAN **350L).

LING 490/590 Language Contact

In situations of intense language contact virtually any linguistic phenomena can be transferred from one language to another. What then determines the linguistic outcome of language contact? Can “anything happen” language-internally given enough social pressure? What discourse strategies and cultural practices facilitate or block the transfer of features across languages? What happens in situations of linguistic exogamy where people are culturally required to marry outside their speech community (i.e. Vaupés in Amazonia)? What happens when groups of people from very different language backgrounds have to trade (i.e. Pacific Northwest)? What happens when different ethnic groups are forced to live in mission settlements (i.e. Australia)? In this seminar we will explore the origins and development of various outcomes of language contact from both sociocultural and structural perspectives. Themes to be covered include: areal diffusion and genetic inheritance; grammaticalization induced by contact; the genesis of pidgins, creoles, koines, and mixed languages; among others. We will also examine the notion of linguistic area and survey well-documented linguistic areas in the world.

LING 490/590 Experimental Phonetics

This class will introduce a variety of methods for investigating speech production and perception. While much of the class will be hands-on, we will also read about how these methods have been used to explore phonological issues. One focus will be on ways to analyze different kinds of phonological reduction.

The first part of the course will cover some basic acoustic theory – just enough to understand the properties of speech sounds. We will use Praat software for analysis of speech acoustics and creating perception experiments. Depending on equipment availability, we’ll explore tools for measuring articulation. We’ll also discuss some applied domains in which acoustic phonetics is useful, such as forensic study of speech, speech technology, computerized language learning, and others of interest to the class.

LING 590/SIGN 418 Signed Language Interpreting Research

A detailed study of current trends and practices in signed language interpreting and evaluation, along with similarities and differences between signed language and spoken language interpreting. Introduction to interpreting process models and assessment models and discussion of current research in the field of interpreting.  Students will conduct a small-scale research project and participate in a debate of issues surrounding the interpreting profession.
