Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The unprecedented use of English as an international lingua franca, as both consequence and driving force of globalization, has led to the realization that conventional attitudes to English and approaches to its study need to be critically examined. This has resulted in a very considerable and fast-growing field of research that is concerned both with the sociolinguistic significance of English as lingua franca (ELF) as a naturally adaptive linguistic development and with its theoretical and applied linguistic implications, the latter particularly in the areas of language teaching and language policy. In this seminar, we will investigate this phenomenon from various perspectives and consider how ELF is different from the English(es) participants are familiar with.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will be assessed on the basis of participation in discussions throughout the course, a short project outline, a bibliography, the oral presentation of their research project as well as a written seminar paper in which they report on their projects.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The objective of this course is the investigation of the forms and functions of ELF, both conceptually and empirically. Participants will become (more) aware of the sociolinguistic reality of, and the theoretical background to, the study of English as it has developed as a global lingua franca. In particular, students will learn to analyze the forms that ELF takes when used for various purposes in intercultural communication, and to appreciate the functional motivation of these forms. We shall also devote some space to reflection on the practical implications (e.g. for language teaching) of research in this area.

Prüfungsstoff

In an introductory phase, the agenda of the seminar will be presented, selected readings discussed (esp. on the concept of ELF and on corpus linguistics), and participants will gradually develop their research questions. Participants will be offered an introduction to VOICE Online, the Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (http://www.univie.ac.at/voice/) and to techniques of conducting research with the help of this resource. Students will also be given guidance in choosing and analysing interesting features of the use of spoken ELF. Participants will then be able to conduct their own searches and investigations, and will discuss their ideas and findings both during the weekly sessions as well as at the seminar conference. This seminar conference will be held on Friday, May 20th (afternoon), and on Saturday May 21st (morning to mid-afternoon), concurrently with Dr. Kaltenböck's seminar. In exchange for time spent at the seminar conference a number of regular seminar sessions, esp. towards the end of term, will not be held.

Literatur

Some introductory reading will be made available to registered participants to help preparation for the first session, and a few relevant readings will be distributed in the early part of the course via Moodle.
