Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course will introduce and explore basic concepts in the study of pragmatics, such as speech acts, politeness strategies and ways of flouting (and violating) maxims of the Gricean cooperative principle. In class, we will explore these concepts together on the basis of required readings and examples of language use. At the beginning of term, the course will also introduce students to theoretical, practical and ethical issues of collecting and transcribing spoken language data and provide input on key concepts of conversation analysis and interaction.
On the basis of this input, students will work in groups during the first weeks of term to collect and transcribe their own samples of naturally-occurring spoken interaction (data collection and transcription assignment). These self-collected and self-transcribed language data will then be used by students independently in the second half of term for an individual research project that each student will present orally (presentation) and in written form (term paper; handout for presentation). For this individual project, each student will chose a particular pragmatic aspect and analyze it in the interactive data collected and transcribed by her/his group.

AIMS
After this course, you should have a good overview of the main theories and concepts in the study of pragmatics. You should be able to identify these concepts in samples of naturally-occurring interactive spoken language and be capable of carrying out a focused, more detailed analysis of a particular aspect. You should be able to formulate an appropriate and concise research question and to present theoretical concepts and insights from your data analysis in oral and written form. Furthermore, you will have experience in linguistic field work and be familiar with practical and theoretical issues involved in data collection and transcription.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students are assessed on the basis of participation, assignments (data collection and transcription), presentation (incl. mandatory handout) and a written term paper. Students will form groups to collect and transcribe small samples of naturally-occurring spoken interaction. Based on these samples, each student will work on an individual topic for presentation and written paper.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Course evaluation is based on:
* attendance, reading assignments, homework & active in-class participation (10 %)
* data collection and transcription assignments (20 %)
* individual presentation with mandatory handout (20 %)
* term paper (50 %)

The minimum requirements for passing the course are:
(a) regular class attendance (max. 2 absences)
(b) handing in all data collection and transcription assignments (on time)
(c) giving the oral presentation (on set date)
(d) handing in the term paper (on time)
(e) attaining 60 of the maximum of 100 points.
Final grades & points achieved:
Sehr gut: 90-100; Gut: 80-89; Befriedigend: 70-79; Genügend: 60-69; Nicht Genügend: 0-59
