The course will give the students a good understanding of how they can go from formulating questions and hypotheses to how they can hope to have their hypotheses tested. The instructors will use their own research as a basis for their lectures. All the instructors are linguists with a strong research background and experience from different kinds of experiments, from advanced online experiments (eye tracking, mouse-tracking, real-time studies) with high technology tools to offline methods (elicitations, interviews) with very little advanced equipment.
