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.

Call for Papers
