Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

CONTENTS
Building on the introductory module (STEOP), this course discusses the basics and ethics of academic writing and research methodology with the help of hands-on examples from English linguistics. Students will be familiarised with basic concepts and fundamental problems in the English lexicon. They will then individually investigate one selected topic and submit their findings in the form of a written paper.
In this course, students are made familiar with:
- The basic principles and ethics of academic research
- Finding and evaluating academic sources
- The basic conventions of academic writing
- Basic concepts and problems in the study of the English lexicon
- Selected resources and tools used in vocabulary research
PREREQUISITES
As this course builds on knowledge and skills acquired during STEOP (ISL1, Language Analysis), basic knowledge of word formation processes and (lexical) semantics will be taken for granted.
THERE WILL BE A SHORT QUIZ COUNTING TOWARDS THE FINAL GRADE IN THE VERY FIRST SESSION to make sure that students have this knowledge readily available. The quiz will be based on chapters 5 and 9 in Yule ‘The Study of Language’ (see STEOP reading list).

We strongly suggest that students have completed at least ILSS1, but ideally also ILSS2 before taking this course. Writing skills such as paragraphing (topic sentence, support, ...) and having a clear line of argumentation are taken for granted and a basic understanding of the structure of an in-text citation will prove helpful.
AIMS
Students will be able to carry out a guided literature-based research project in English linguistics building on knowledge acquired in the course.
METHODS
Reading, discussions, peer-group interaction, in-class and online exercises, lecturer input, autonomous research
In addition to our regular sessions, head librarian Karin Lach will offer a two-hour tutorial workshop on literature research. Date to be announced.
