3. Course contents *

Good (scientific) research crucially hinges on adequate data collection, analysis, and presentation. This course provides a hands-on and stepwise introduction to corpus research, the development of native-speaker surveys and the collection of sociolinguistic data. We will investigate how we can gather data on a wide range of grammatical and sociolinguistic phenomena in different varieties of English (synchronic/diachronic, inner/outer circle, L1/L2).
