Linguistic variation and change in discourse practices; social and political correlates of linguistic interaction; recording, transcription, and analysis of verbal interaction. Includes a significant engagement in writing as a form of critical inquiry and scholarly expression to satisfy the WID requirement.
Students will select data, observe and make transcriptions, and develop analyses that reflect an interpretation of the linguistic, social and cultural significance of the material. They will develop a sense of what an “ethnographic” approach to speech involves, and be able to implement basic methods of discourse analysis informed by an understanding of the theoretical assumptions upon which their analyses are based. Specific outcomes include:
1. Knowing how the ethnography of speaking and communication emerged as a named field and what its theoretical underpinnings are.
2. Using data on language structure, language socialization, social change in linguistic genres, and variation in how people use language in social situations to choose samples of discourse for study.
3. Learn the basic conventions for transcribing speech data, and become familiar with the technical vocabulary for describing language data as it occurs in social settings and social interaction.
4. Use software that permits quantitative analysis of larger sets of data (corpora).
