One of the main goals of phonetic research is to investigate the acoustic, aerodynamic, and articulatory correlates which best classify the speech sounds of the living human languages. In recent years, the application of phonetic tools has moved beyond the study of consonants and vowels. The aim of this workshop is to introduce various methods, resources, and tools currently used in phonetic research and other closely related fields (speech pathology, biomechanical modeling of sound change). Students and researchers interested to investigate the phonetic aspects of languages will benefit from the current workshop.Presenter:
Qandeel Hussain earned his PhD Linguistics from Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) and specialized in experimental phonetics and laboratory phonology. His research interests include linguistic typology, acoustic and articulatory description of endangered Dravidian, Indo-Iranian, Japonic, and Sino-Tibetan languages, language documentation, Bayesian phylogenetics, and historical-comparative linguistics. He uses cutting-edge experimental phonetic tools (ultrasound-imaging, oral-nasal airflow, and electroglottography) to document the consonantal and vocalic contrasts of under-described languages.
RELEVANCE TO LANGUAGE/LINGUISTICS COMMUNITY:
"[W]hat holds together the diverse forms of Cognitive Linguistics is the belief that linguistic knowledge involves not just knowledge of the language, but knowledge of our experience of the world as mediated by the language." (Dirk Geeraerts and Herbert Cuyckens, eds., The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics. Oxford University Press, 2007)
"Language offers a window into cognitive function, providing insights into the nature, structure and organization of thoughts and ideas. The most important way in which cognitive linguistics differs from other approaches to the study of language, then, is that language is assumed to reflect certain fundamental properties and design features of the human mind." (Vyvyan Evans and Melanie Green, Cognitive Linguistics: An Introduction. Routledge, 2006)
Cognitive linguistics is a multidisciplinary branch of linguistics that came to the academic shores/arena in 1990. Cognitive Linguistics combine the knowledge of cognitive science, cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and linguistics. In the light of above-mentioned quotes, Cognitive Linguistics offers linguists with a wide range of theoretical and methodological perspectives that can be combined with already known and researched field of linguistics like discourse, language teaching, etc.
