3-9 hours. Repeatable for a maximum of 9 hours.

Experimental Methods

An introduction to experimental methods to linguistics, including discussion of experimental design, and stimulus creation. Methods covered include informal vs. formal acceptability judgments (‘experimental syntax’), psycholinguistic methods (categorization tasks, lexical decision, self-paced reading, eye-tracking), and neurolinguistic techniques (neuroimaging basics; event-related designs; encoding/decoding analyses; RSA). Students will develop and run an in-class behavioral experiment in small groups. This will include formulating hypotheses, designing stimuli, running participants, and analyzing and reporting results.

NOTES: A new course number for this class (LING 4410) is currently pending. If approved in time, this dedicated course number will be substituted for LING 4940. For Fall 2023, this course can be used to satisfy either the Area I or Area II requirement for the Linguistics major.
