Leerdoelen After successful completion of the module, students will be able to...
1. critically discuss a usage based theory of communication and conversation analysis;
2. perform and report on an empirical study in the field of conversation analysis;
3. discuss differences in modes of communication, first- and second-language communication, and scripted and unscripted conversation on the basis of theory and empirical evidence.
Omschrijving This course focuses on how conversation partners must continuously pay attention to and
construe each other’s signals at different levels, in different modes (verbal and non-verbal),
and in different layers (serious and pretending) to be able to understand each other. We
will focus especially on the differences between conversations by first- and second-language
speakers.
