課程概述

This course is a seminar on spontaneous speech corpora. 

課程目標
The course is divided into two parts. The first part concerns speech corpus construction. Students are required to be familiar with different types of speech corpora from various languages, and the various techniques used in querying information from the corpora. The second part of the course focuses on research papers done using speech corpora. We will discuss papers that use speech corpora as sources of their data and how it would help us gain insights into the nature of language, which could not have been achieved using read speech.

說明
1. 
Assignments 
25% 
All assignments will be assigned accordingly. These are hands-on opportunities for you to experience various corpus construction tasks. For each task, you are required to run five (pairs of) subjects, evaluate the pros and cons of the tasks, and provide possible modifications that could be done in order to tailor-made the tasks to specific research needs. 
2. 
Presentation 
25% 
You are required to present journal papers in turn. Presentation does not entail only a faithful summary of the article, but also a thorough review with a critical perspective. You will be evaluated more heavily according to the latter than the former. 
3. 
Participation 
15% 
It should be intuitive to you that participation in discussion is the key to the success of a seminar. Please help me make this course better by giving me your input in class and also outside of classroom. I would really appreciate it if you could all actively participate in classroom activities and discussions. 
4. 
Course project 
35% 
You are required to do a course project on a topic of interest. There will be a presentation period at the end of the semester. The project can be on anything as long as it is based on data from spontaneous speech corpora of at least 5 hr long, within which you will have to contribute (in any form) at least one hour. Four milestones, described below, are set throughout the semester for the course project. (1) CP1: Research plan (20%) This should include a brief sketch of what you propose to study. You should include your research question(s), method of study, predictions of results, and implication of the study. Relevant literatures should also be included. (2) CP2: Progress report (20%) This should include a detailed method used in the study. You should carefully lay out the details regarding the target language(s) of study, speakers, equipment used, and procedure. Preliminary results should also be included. (3) CP3: Presentation (30%) You will be given 20-min presentation time slot on 6/11. During this time-slot, you are to highlight whatever significant findings you have found in your study. The style of presentation should be formal. You can use whatever media you please. You will be graded on both your presentation skills and audience response. (4) CP4: Final report (30%) This is due on 6/16, Monday. 10% of the grades will be deducted for each late day. It should be no more than a 20-paged, double-spaced, polished report incorporating all the comments you have gathered throughout the semester, including the final presentation. The report should follow a formal format, with at least seven sections—abstract, introduction & literature review, methods, results, discussion, conclusion, and references.
