Jobs: Dutch; Disc Analysis; Pragmatics: PhD Position, U of Groningen

Editor for this issue: Christy Bird <christylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

2 PhD positions in Language & Interaction (Daily and Aphasic Dutch)

University of Groningen, Faculty of Arts
Center for Language and Cognition

The PhD positions are part of the NWO-funded Vidi research project "The
Conversation Frame: Linguistic Forms and Communicative Functions in
Discourse", awarded to Dr. Esther Pascual. The program examines the
relation between language, interaction and cognition, i.e. what Pascual
calls 'fictive interaction'. The main focus is on (intra-)sentential
interactional structures -often expressed through direct speech- that
reflect the conversational pattern of turn-taking. Examples are: "an
attitude that says 'what's in it for me?'", "a 'what's in it for me?'
attitude". The language data will be daily and aphasic Dutch discourse from
adult native speakers. The program is organized around two related PhD
projects. We are inviting applications for one of these PhD projects.

Project 1 (1,0 fte).
'Fictive Interaction' in Daily Dutch (vacancy 210089)
The PhD candidate will examine the different forms and functions of
(intra-)sentential conversational structures in various genres, through the
study of a wide range of oral and written corpora of old and modern Dutch.

Project 2 (1,0 fte).
'Fictive Interaction' in Aphasic Dutch (vacancy 210090)
The PhD candidate will examine the use of (intra-)sentential interactional
structures as adaptation strategy in natural conversations of
speech-impaired individuals with Broca's aphasia (e.g. "Joe: 'oh dear, oh
dear'" for "Joe was really worried"; "Sugar? No!" for "I am a diabetic").
