Module overview

This final year module builds on the theoretical grounding students gain in LING 2011 Variation and Change in English and the instrumental analysis techniques from LING 2008 Sound and Voice. Through a series of computer, lab-based sessions, students test elements of sociolinguistic theory, specifically the Variationist Paradigm, and develop a methodological sociophonetic toolkit, which equips them to design and conduct their own small-scale sociolinguistic project.
