the intersection between variation in phonetic/phonological form and social factors (such as a speaker’s region, age, group identity, ethnic background, sexual orientation, level of education, etc.), acoustic production of variation, effects of sociophonetic variation on speech perception, on language change, and on language acquisition
This course complements our current graduate course offerings in Sociolinguistics and Phonetics and Phonology by allowing students to familiarize themselves with best practices for conducting research at their intersection. This subfield of linguistics is relatively new, and as such, this course offers cutting-edge training in both research methods and statistical methods that can be extended to other branches of linguistics.
Last learning ourcome needs to be revised.
Please clarify values for each individual assignment. For example: The critical review of research articles are worth 20% and there are two of them. Are each worth 10%? Is one 5% and the other 15%?
Course will appear in the 1920 Graduate Bulletin.
