課程概述

Graduate Institute of Linguistics -- National Taiwan University
Neurolinguistics
Spring 2004
Professor Kathleen Ahrens

Course Time: Tuesday 9:10am-noon
Location: GIL classroom
E-mail: kathleenahrens@yahoo.com.
Office hours: Tuesday 12:00-14:00 pm or by appointment
Office: Le-Xue-Guan Room 307. Phone: 363-0231 ext. 3490 ext. 307

Course Goals:
• To have students examine and formulate opinions on current neurolinguistic literature related to linguistic processes (especially semantics and pragmatics)
• To have the students learn how to critique neurolinguistic papers, especially issues related to stimuli and design
• To have students set up a neurolinguistic study and run pretests necessary to set up that study and incorporate their work into a final research paper.

Course Grading:
Final Research Paper – 33.3 %
Class Contribution – 33.3 %
Critiques _ Assignments 33.3 %

Other important points to note:
1) Prior exposure to graduate-level courses in psycholinguistics, syntax and semantics is strongly encouraged.
2) The class will be conducted in English.
3) The reading load and preparation time needed for this course is heavy, due to the nature of field (i.e. unfamiliar terminology, etc.) and the emphasis on the case-study approach.
4) All auditors must do the same reading preparation work as students who take the class for credit.

Course Policy on Absenteeism and Tardiness and Late Assignments
• No absences are allowed without my prior permission or a doctor’s note from the university health center or a public hospital.
• It is the student’s responsibility to find out what occurred and what was taught in class during his or her absence. If a surprise quiz, or assignment was given or due, it is the student’s responsibility to make up that work.
• Make-up work that requires the teacher’s presence (to listen to a recitation or presentation or to give an exam) will be completed at a time convenient to the teacher. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with the teacher immediately upon his or her return to class.
• Students that are tardy will be required to do an extra assignment either during the class period or after class to make up for their tardiness.
• All assignments must be typed (not hand-written). Late assignments will have five points subtracted from the total grade for each day they are late, starting with the date they are due.
• Two unexcused class hours in one semester will lower your overall course grade by 5%.
• Each additional unexcused class hour over two will lower your grade by an additional 5%.

Class #1 – 2/17
Overview
Personal data form
Expectations – each student will prepare a professional presentation for each class, and will be prepared to discuss differing viewpoints in class. One page critiques are required Monday morning at 9am prior to the discussion day (on website) and turned in at the beginning of class. Each student will also pick one area and write up a literature review, annotated bibliography, and follow-up study (running pretests to set up the study) to turn in as a final paper

Class #2 – 2/24
