Leerdoelen The goal is to give students a chance to study a research topic in depth, critically discuss current literature on that topic, and then finally by doing a pilot study make a real contribution to further understanding of the topic.
Omschrijving In this course one area of linguistic research is studied in depth. The first lectures are a basic introduction to the topic interwoven with computer labs (which make up part of the final grade) where we'll look at using a computational model to investigate the phenomena in focus. During the course students will present research articles on the chosen topic. After all the relevant research has been discussed, students choose an independent research project that will further contribute to the body of knowledge about the topic. This is typically either a psycholinguistic experiment, or an experiment using corpus materials an machine learning. Other projects are possible, depending on the skills and interests of the participants. Students then write a paper detailing this work in the form of a conference paper.

Earlier classes have focused on focus, conversational implicature and ellipsis and coreference resolution.ß
