LING060 - SOCIAL IDENTITY IN LANG

Language and social interaction are fundamentally intertwined. In this course we will explore their influence on one another. In the first part of the semester we'll ask what we learn about someone from the way they speak: how social meaning is extracted from language. In the second part of the course we will ask how our social judgments about speakers influence the perception and processing of language itself. Themes throughout will include linguistics as a science, hypothesis formation and testing, experimental design, and the social impacts of linguistic bias.
