How to represent spoken language in written form: Analysing conversational data from James Joyce to Southern Papua New Guinea

  • 4pm-5.30pm, Tuesday 24 March 2015
  • HRC Conference Room, Top Floor, AD Hope Building ANU
  • Professor Volker Gast, Friedrich Schiller University, Germany
This talk will deal with the variation of human language along two dimensions, the medium (spoken vs. written) and the level of distance or proximity between the interlocutors (from local to global). The main focus of the talk will be on matters of methodology, i.e. the question of how the type of register variation in question can be systematically investigated and, ideally, measured.

Free and open to the public
