Course description
Linguistic description and analysis are commonly based on written language data. However, the structure of written language is radically different from that of the spoken one, notably spontaneous language. By exploring features and structures of spontaneous daily Hebrew, we will ask ourselves whether we need to detach ourselves from traditional notions of linguistic analysis so as to be aware of spoken language structures. We will mainly deal with methodologies for the study of spoken spontaneous language, looking into segmental (phonological, morphological, syntactic and discoursive) and suprasegmental (i.e, intonational or prosodic) features. The study of spoken language makes use of computerized tools, and we will look into several such options.
