Advanced skill development in laboratory-based phonetics or in syntactic theory will be provided for those students who require these specialised skills for their thesis work. Advanced Linguistic Analysis A and B will be taken consecutively over one semester. These subjects are designed to ensure that students have the necessary skill set in advanced phonetics or advanced syntax to enable them to define their thesis topic in line with contemporary theoretical literature.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this subject, students should have:

  • enhanced knowledge of the topic or area of scholarship taught in the module;
  • an ability to reflect upon their own research work in relation to the content of the module; and
  • enhanced engagement with leading-edge research in Arts today.

Generic skills

The subjects will contribute, through teaching and discussion with academic staff and peers, to developing the skills and capacities identified in the University-defined Graduate Attributes for the PhD, in particular:

  • the capacity to contextualise research within an international corpus of specialist knowledge;
  • an advanced ability to evaluate and synthesise research-based and scholarly literature; and
  • an advanced understanding of key disciplinary and multi-disciplinary norms and perspectives relevant to the field.
