N'CLAV field work in Copenhagen: Language variation in an urban setting
The Copenhagen field work will focus on language variation in a late modern urban setting ex ploiting primarily sociolinguistic methodology. Today, most Scandinavian cities exhibit a high de gree of linguistic diversity, where variation is difficult to capture in terms of traditional sociolects or dialects: New linguistic features have emerged and old ones are used in new ways. Moreover, stylistic practices of the late modern society make it necessary for the student of linguistic variation to include intra-individual variation, the social meaning of variation and locally defined social categories in the scope of the field work.
The 5 days of field work is organized by the N’CLAV Copenhagen group and includes a two day seminar on sociolinguistic methodology and a concluding discussion concerning the question “What are linguistic data?”. The rest of the field work comprises hands-on activities during which the participants collect data in central Copenhagen exploiting sociolinguistic methodology.
The participants will be accommodated in central Copenhagen, and the operational base for the field work as well as the institution where the seminar will take place is the The LANCHART Centre at the University of Copenhagen.
The field work and seminar take place from Monday to Friday in week 13, 2011 (March 28th - April 1st).
Deadline for registration is November 1st 2010. For more information about the field work and how to register see: (web site closed)
