LING3099 - Special Projects in Linguistics


This course initiates undergraduate students into research in Linguistics, and is an approved substitute for the HUMN3099 Caribbean Studies Project. LING3099 specifically enhances understanding of the nature of research in general and linguistics research in particular. Students are expected to develop skills at identifying and defining problems, selecting appropriate approaches to research, and designing and executing research programmes across the broad spectrum of possibilities in Linguistics. The primary emphasis is on practical exercises, workshop and seminar presentations. Final Assessment is by one 5,000- 8,000-word research paper. Many of the projects are original in topic and focus, and provide valuable insight into languages and linguistics in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean.
