LING3006 Laboratory Linguistics

Dr. Jonathan Havenhill

Capstone Course. Sem 2, 6 credits

Course Description

In the past decade, the field of linguistics has increasingly looked to experimental results to confirm and extend its understanding of language patterns. In this course, we will (a) examine some of the issues involved in deriving experimentally testable predictions from a theory, (b) designing and running an experiment, and (c) interpreting the results. This course involves two main activities; first, students will read and present most recent articles on laboratory linguistics and participate in group discussion. Second, students will actually get involved in experimentation to gain practical skillset needed in laboratory linguistic research.
