Cursusdoelen
The successful participant will:
- have acquired command of the basic theoretical concepts of syntax, morphology, and phonology;
- understand how these concepts apply to bodies of data from natural languages (with a focus on English);
- be able to analyse small data sets using appropriate methodology;
- be able to write a research plan; a methodology section (within a research paper); a research proposal.
 
Inhoud
This course introduces students to the scientific study of language. It provides an introduction to core concepts in the areas of syntax, morphology, phonology and phonetics, aiming at a sophisticated understanding of native speakers' unconscious knowledge of the structure of English words and sentences, and a basic understanding of the way in which this knowledge is acquired. Students are familiarised with linguistic methods of data analysis, including the analysis of speech and corpus data, and acquire research writing skills. Students learn to write a research plan (250-300 words), a methodology section (500 words), and a research proposal (700 words) on the basis of a practical research project.

Algemeen
The weekly lectures consist of two parts (one on phonetics and phonology, and one on syntax & morphology) and provide an introduction to the topics, as well as the theoretical background to the skills practised in the tutorials. In the tutorials, students practise analysing linguistics data, and are familiarised with writing in linguistic. They learn to write a research plan, a methodology section, and a more elaborate research proposal.
