Workshop I: Cognitive Linguistics

The aim of this workshop is to get acquainted with basic concepts of cognitive linguistics, such as conceptualization, trajector and landmark, and metaphor. As case studies, fictive motion, semantics of spatial expressions (local cases and adpositions/adverbs), and metaphors of time will be discussed. The learning objective of the workshop is that the student is familiar with cognitive ways of thinking about language, finds cognitive literature more easily accessible, and can think of cognitive solutions for linguistic problems.

Workshop II: Analyzing text material and corpora

Jorma Luutonen:
The lecture has two parts: 1) Introduction to the NVivo 11 program, which has been designed for qualitative researchers working with text-based and/or multimedia information. The program is oriented to organizing, classifying and coding of unstructured data. The text search facility can easily handle with many data formats. 2) The second part of the lecture demonstrates three different kinds of corpus: an annotated corpus of Mordvinic languages, a parallel text corpus, and a collection of electronic wordlists.

Tommi Kurki:
The objective of the lecture is to introduce and demonstrate some statistical methods used in (variationist social)linguistics. The course addresses the use of statistical packages for multivariate analyses, especially packages with a VARBRUL origin and alternative packages with newer tools and techniques (e.g. R). The lecture treats of methods and their background. 

No previous experience of applying statistical methods or especially multivariate analyses is needed. On the contrary, the course is primarily intended for beginners.
