This final year module builds on the theoretical grounding students gained in LING 2011 Variation and Change in English and the instrumental analysis techniques from LING 2008 Sound and Voice. In Sociophonetic Project Module, students will put the theory and techniques into practice by designing and conducting their own small-scale sociolinguistic project.
The module will be computer lab-based and structured around a series of sessions that will equip students with a sociophonetic ‘toolkit’. The sessions will combine taught theory and practical methods. Sessions will start with a taught element to guide students through the supporting theory, followed by practical methodological skills session where students will put the theory into practice.
