Beschreibung: When hearing the sentence Sam spilled the beans, we know that Sam didn’t cause a giant mess but told a secret. How is that possible? Construction Grammar is a modern approach to linguistic structure that assumes that syntax, just like words, carries meaning. In this seminar, we will seek to answer questions like: How do we learn new expressions and which cognitive processes are involved in that? How does language use influence our linguistic knowledge? How can corpus data help us in systematically studying linguistic expressions? Besides getting to know the basic tenets of usage-based cognitive Construction Grammar, students will apply their theoretical knowledge in small corpus-based analyses and thereby pick up practical skills in doing Corpus Linguistics. No previous knowledge in working with corpora required.
Please note: This seminar is designed as a „Blockseminar“, it will start on the 14.06.2023.
Should there be any scheduling issues, e.g., you would like to take part in the seminar but you will have to leave early on e.g. two days or cannot be there on one of the scheduled days, please contact mpentrel@uos.de and we will try to find a solution.

The seminar is open for BA-students and can be select for all components of the ANG-V2, ANG-V-SW, and the ANG-I module. It’s not part of the normal drafting procedure, you need to enroll for it directly. If you have any questions, please contact mpentrel@uos.de as long as the seminar still has „N.N." as the lecturer (this will change in early June).
