Fall 2021 Seminar Descriptions 

70266 LING 554.001  A Seminar in Pragmatics
Tuesday, 12:30-1:45pm
*This is a hybrid course, combining face-to-face and online activities.
Instructor: Holly E. Jacobson

This seminar will introduce students to the study of pragmatics. Students will focus on contextualized meaning, concentrating on those aspects of meaning that cannot be predicted by linguistic knowledge alone. Readings and discussions will focus on speaker and hearer interpretation of meaning, contexual meaning, extralinguistic communication, and relative distance in analyzing face-to-face interaction. Students will also examine how social and cultural presuppositions impact the management of rapport in spoken interaction.

69519 LING 590.001 Seminar: Sociophonetics
This course provides a practical introduction to the acoustic analysis of phonetic/phonological data from the perspective of language variation in society. In sociophonetics, as in sociolinguistics overall, variation is seen as basic. In accordance with this perspective, this class focuses on phonetic/phonological variation in its natural habitat: the social context that defines actual language in use. This perspective stands opposed to one in which phonetic analysis is limited to reading tasks and similar articifical, lab-based elicitation techniques that target imagined language use, rather than actual language use, and which typically privilege speakers of standard language varieties.

The course will teach you to do acoustic analysis of a wide variety of phonetic/phonological variables. We will start with a brief review of speech acoustics and an introduction to the variationist linguistic paradigm. This is followed by a discussion of field recording techniques. We then survey a range of phonetic/phonological variables in English, Spanish, and other languages, including variation at the level of vowels, consonants, prosody, and voice quality. We will also look at sociophonetic variation in speech perception and the creation of sociophonetic speech perception stimuli. Throughout the semester we will practice working with the acoustics software Praat.

Schedule as of September 8, 2021

This course presents an introduction to the study of language through the basic aspects of linguistic analysis: the sound system (phonetics and phonology), the structure of words and sentences (morphology and syntax), and the ways in which language is used to convey meaning (semantics and pragmatics). In addition, the course will investigate how language is acquired and stored in the brain, and how differences in speech styles and dialects reflect different social and cultural backgrounds of individual speakers. Meets New Mexico General Education Curriculum Area 4: Social and Behavioral Sciences.
