PhD seminar at the University of Oslo (Blindern), 31 October - 2 November 2018
This course will give the participants an introduction to prosodic analysis. It will discuss the prosodic hierarchy and the interface between prosody, syntax and information structure. It will also involve some analysis of empirical data.
Alexander Lykke is a Research Fellow at Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies. Welcome to the Midway Evaluation of his project "Tense morphology: Stability, variation and change in American Norwegian". The external reader for the Midway Evaluation is Erik Magnusson Petzell, University of Gothenburg.
This course critically compares and contrasts methodological approaches for both language documentation and linguistic analysis. We will investigate the advantages and disadvantages of tools used in both experimental and language documentation approaches such as elicitation, rating tasks, interviews, focus groups, participatory observation, storyboards, and recordings of naturalistic conversation. We will also investigate how these tools can be effectively disseminated, such as through building a corpus and archiving. One of the main takeaway points is for students to develop one of these methods for their own research and for potential cross-linguistic dissemination.
