Subject: SLE Summer School on Linguistic Methodology
The Societas Linguistica Europaea (SLE) is organising a
Summer School on Linguistic Methodology
to be held in Italy (Campobasso), July 16th-29th, 2007.
The aim of the Summer School is both to provide solid methodological
principles and to practise up-to-date analytic procedures and working
technologies. It focuses on questions of epistemology, of reliability and
validity of methods, on practical and technical tasks of data provision,
processing, analysis, storage and retrieval as well as on psychological,
social and ethical questions of treatment of informants and speech
communities. Its major aim is to enable participants to execute a project
by themselves in selecting the methods appropriate to their topic and
applying them correctly to the data.
The level of the seminars addresses PhD students of linguistics and
neighbouring disciplines. Participants of other academic levels will be
admitted to the extent possible.
The lecturers are internationally renowned professors of linguistics with
different specialties, coming from five European countries and the USA.
Lecturers and participants will be hosted together in Campobasso. The
language of the Summer School will be English.
The Summer School comprises a total of 16 courses, 8 per week. A course
should be attended by up to 20 students. Thus, the summer school can take
up to 160 students.
The list of courses includes the following:
Epistemology of linguistics
Methodology of field work
Ethnolinguistics of oral traditions
Methodology of tonology
Methodology of dialectology and its theoretical consequences
Syntactic theory and usage frequency
Methodology of historical linguistics
Methodology of corpus linguistics for spoken and written language
