Programa

Miércoles, 13 de julio
10:00 - 12:00 What is language regard and why do we need a new term when we can already have the perfectly good “language attitudes”?
Why study regard? Ethnographic and social psychological reasons seem obvious – applied ones perhaps less so, although the idea that we should do linguistic engineering without knowing what people believe about language seems short-sighted if not naïve. Finally, are there any good reasons within more general linguistic theory and linguistic description that justify it?
What sorts of studies and traditions (sociolinguistic, ethnographic, anthropological, ideological, social psychological, folk linguistic, perceptual dialectological, etc…) lie behind it and what have been their principal findings?

10:00 - 12:00 How to do it
What to think about (the “independent variables”) and how they may guide and be guided by research techniques.

    2. Context – contextualized vs. noncontextualized
  2. Stimulus
    1. Priming – primed vs. non-primed
    2. Presentation – video, written stimulus, pictures, etc…
    3. Size – global vs. specific

    5. Access – direct vs. indirect access to a linguistic stimulus
    6. Authenticity – native vs. imitated
    7. Naturalness – natural vs. (re)synthesized
    8. Presence – an actual linguistic stimulus is provided or not provided
  3. Respondents

  4. Response
    1. Behavior – respondent activity or task (rate, read, observe, perform, etc…)
    2. Mode – fixed (Likert scale, forced choice, etc…) vs. open-ended (discoursal, eye-tracking, etc…)
    3. Timing – present vs. absent
    4. Awareness – unaware (nonconscious) vs. aware (conscious)
