The Phonetics of Talk in Interaction

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventSeminar/workshop/course


The course will take place online on Wednesday 22 - Friday 24 March 2023. The course will run from 9am to 4.30pm BST (GMT+1) each day, and the daily synchronous online sessions will take place from 10.30am to 12noon and 1pm to 4.30pm BST (GMT+1).

Participants will learn some of the basic linguistic terminology of phonetic/prosodic description including phrasing, accentuation, articulatory setting and intonation to be able to describe conversational speech in more technical terms. Participants will learn how to provide suitable evidence (such as pictures in Praat, and phonetic transcription) to illustrate some phonetic/prosodic phenomena. There will be overviews of linguistic phenomena and a chance to apply these to an interactional phenomenon in data sessions.

The course will offer mini-lectures, skills demonstrations, ear-training and transcription sessions, data sessions, and short assignments to be completed in groups.
