Course Description

In this course, students will learn techniques and strategies for different research methods in linguistics, including eliciting, recording, and archiving data, as well as several other experimental techniques and approaches to data collection. These skills are necessary for adding to our knowledge of the world’s languages. Lectures as well as in-lab demonstrations will be given, as well as assignments to solidify the students’ understanding of the methods. These will be discussed in the context of linguistic issues, both in class and in tutorial sessions, to identify interesting properties of the language, collect data, and ultimately write a report of a piece of original research to be carried out during the semester using one or more of the introduced methods.

Prerequisite: LING1000/1001, LING2004, LING2027 and LING2050
