Linguistics Research Project

30 points



This course supports students to conduct their own empirical research project. Students will design their own research, and write a research paper reporting on their novel findings. The course will begin with orientation to New Zealand English, and learning about some empirical studies that have been done on this variety. Students will then develop their own empirical research question, using the New Zealand Institute of Language Brain and Behaviour's internationally renowned corpora, or by collecting their own data using a questionnaire or language experiment. Course content will be adapted to suit student interests, and the class will work together as a group to support the development of each other's projects.
