Seminar

wöchentlich Di 10:15 - 11:45 GW2 A3390 (CIP-Labor FB 10)

Current research in the field of English corpus linguistics challenges the traditional division between foreign language / learner varieties of English (English as a Foreign Language, EFL) and institutionalized second-language varieties of English (English as a Second Language, ESL), the so-called “paradigm-gap”. Despite the manifold differences between EFL and ESL, and although the two types of varieties have traditionally been examined in different research paradigms (EFL in Second Language Acquisition research, ESL in research on World Englishes), there are a number of similarities that warrant a comparative perspective. Both are ‘non-native’ varieties, are acquired in institutionalised settings as foreign or second languages in language contact situations, and, most importantly for the present context, have been assumed to be subject to similar cognitive processes of language acquisition and production. In this seminar we will review the current research literature in the field and then design corpus-based empirical research projects in which students will compare selected EFL and ESL varietes to examine similarities and difference between the two types of varieties.

10-M80-1-OrMo-04Introduction to Researching Multimodality: theories and methods (in englischer Sprache)
Modultyp B/C im Studiengang Language Sciences, M.A.

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 14:15 - 15:45 GW2 B2900 NW2 B3118

In this course a detailed overview of the growing field of multimodality will be given, examining how different expressive resources (text, pictures, diagrams, layout, movement, sound, ...) combine productively for effective communication, and how problems and failures of communication can be analysed. The course will be example driven, looking at particular kinds of multimodal communication in order to introduce some of the basic theoretical and practical methods developed for state of the art multimodality research.
