Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course, you will engage with and carry out descriptive research on English as a lingua franca (ELF). After an introduction to ELF, students will be made familiar with language corpora and basic principles of corpus linguistics as well as with key concepts of conversation analysis that are relevant to the study of spoken interactions. Students will be introduced to VOICE (the Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English), a one-million word corpus of spoken ELF interactions. For their term papers, students will carry out small individual research projects in which they analyze an aspect of ELF interactions in VOICE. For this purpose, some students will draw on corpus linguistic methods whereas others will rely more extensively on discourse analytic, conversation analytic and interactional sociolinguistic methods.
