This is a course for open-minded students who want to learn more about the breadth of linguistics as a discipline. By discussing concrete research questions from a theoretical and methodological perspective, this course offers a broad overview of current theories and methods in linguistic research. Here, you get the opportunity to delve deeper into selected theories and methods, and apply these to actual linguistic data.

  • read articles in theoretical frameworks that you are not familiar with
  • learn how to deal with theoretical background literature in frameworks that you are not fully familiar with
  • learn how to design and carry out a small study (“a pilot study”) with very strict limitations
  • train your reading strategies
