Social interaction is forms the foundation through which we organize our lives and accomplish action(s) together, whether in mundane, everyday interaction or more formal, institutional encounters. Social interaction is also the most fundamental arena of language use, language learning and language change. But how does social interaction work? How is it organized? And how can we describe its workings scientifically?
As the first course in the module on spoken and written communication, this course is designed to introduce students to basic concepts and methods in Conversation Analysis (CA) and Interactional Linguistics (IL). Together with M(S)K2, this course will enable students to study human social interaction, describe recurrent interactional patterns (existing and new), and eventually work in areas which require expertise in spoken communication. We will explore relevant concepts and methods together and thereby develop a better idea of what distinguishes CA and IL from other approaches to spoken language. Through this exploration, students will develop insight into how human interaction works.
There is no textbook for the course. Course readings will be made available to students in PDF form.
