Inhalt

The aim of this class is to provide practical insights that are related to the Hauptseminar "Language and literacy". We will carry out a small corpus study, e.g.:

  • Compare syntactic constructions or lexical features used in written vs. spoken varieties of English: How much of the variation can be attributed to the modality, and how much is due to individual speaker/author variation or to the genre?

  • Compare syntactic constructions or lexical features used by single speakers across modalities

(analyse the similarities and differences in spoken vs. written language use by individual speakers)
