|154143||Introduction to Sociolinguistics (2nd year BA)||2 PS||Neumaier|
This course is designed to deepen students’ knowledge and skills in academic writing, i.e. in conducting and organizing advanced linguistic research, in identifying and evaluating sources as well as in summarizing and discussing research positions. The focus of this class will be on composing theses (BA and MA) and the individual steps involved in this form of academic writing, from getting started to the final product. We will zoom in on different writing techniques, stylistic questions as well as formal aspects. By the end of this course, students should be able to approach a linguistic topic in an analytical way, to select appropriate literature and information, to discuss opposing views, and to master text cohesion and academic style in their own writing.
