Ability to critically handle and reflect different research methods. 

Ability to analyze language use on the basis of linguistic research and codifications and to judge (lay linguistic) argumentation on linguistic norms.   

 

 

Is language vulnerable? Is it endangered? Language has to follow regularities but does it also need norms that define the “good” and “correct” use? What is the relation between norms and varieties, norms and language change? What are the attitudes of language users towards norms? The course will focus on language system as well as on sociolinguistic perspectives.
