Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Linguistic Theories

Meeting Description:

This course aims at giving the participants an introduction to the basic methodologies available in research into language and discourse. The first day will be devoted to the general theory of science as it pertains to research into language and discourse. Central aspects of the collection and treatment of data will be discussed, with an attempt to create a common overview and a first acquaintance with the many theoretical and methodological approaches that are applied in the PhD projects present at the course. The three following days will take us into the methods traditionally used in formal, functional, computational, cognitive and socio-linguistic approaches. The fifth and final day we will again try to combine the general with the specific and discuss how the different approaches relate to each other, and whether 'I' learnt something that might be advantageously applied in my project from enlarging my acquaintance with other paradigms and approaches. In order to secure the realism of this course framework and a red thread throughout, the same two teachers, Tore Kristiansen and Pia Quist, will be present during the whole course.


Before February 1st, 2010. Please fill out this registration form and send an abstract of your project to Gradeast administrator Katrine Reiff Sano at gradeasthum.ku.dk.


4 ECTS. A course certificate will be issued to participants who have participated in at least 80% of the course.


A limited number of International Student Travel Grants are available to participants from Nordic and Baltic countries through the NordLing network and will be awarded on a 'first come, first served' basis. Danish students cannot apply for these grants. Students must apply for International Student Travel Grants directly to NordLing. See the NordLing website: http://groups.google.com/group/nordling/ (see 'Participants' and 'Grants').
