About

The course aims to enhance and improve students? critical skills in applying various linguistic paradigms to the analysis of naturally occurring, real-life linguistic data (for example various forms of so-called interactional data such as face-to-face conversations or interactions via new media technologies, among others). The participants in the course will learn/practice a number of different theoretical and methodological approaches to linguistic analysis (e.g. cognitive, pragmatic, corpus-based, sociolinguistic, etc.) in relation to specific linguistic issues. Each approach is presented and discussed as regards its potential advantages, drawbacks and limitations. The participants thereafter practice ways to integrate and synthesize these different approaches in order to produce a more holistic application of different paradigms.
