Beschreibung: How and why do users produce and perceive language the way they do? Are there meaningful patterns in language use by different users? These questions lie at the heart of most research in sociolinguistics. This course will introduce how research in sociolinguistics finds answers to these questions. The course is designed to introduce current research in sociolinguistics and help you develop your own research project. We will look at different studies in the field of sociolinguistics and take all the steps from defining a research question, finding methods to answer that question, learning the statistics to evaluate your results and discussing your findings.
