Course Information

Phonetics of Talk-in-Interaction

Course Description

The course will take place online on Monday 17 - Wednesday 19 June 2024. 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.

The course will be limited to 20 participants so that we can work intensively to develop basic skills in data analysis and to understand the core topics to be covered.

The course will enable participants to:

  • Learn some of the basic linguistic terminology for the phonetic/prosodic description of speech.
  • Describe conversational speech in more technical terms.
  • Find out how to provide suitable evidence to illustrate some phonetic/prosodic phenomena.
  • Identify and describe linguistic phenomena and apply these to an interactional phenomenon in data sessions.
  • Network with colleagues from other organisations who share an interest in phonetics.
