This course examines speech as social action. We will draw on the work of folklorists, anthropologists, and sociolinguists to think through how everyday communication constitutes social life. We will pay particular attention to how communities create meaning through culturally-specific ways of speaking. Students will learn methods for researching and analyzing speech events. This course will be valuable to anyone conducting speech-based research.
