COCA “科学人文论坛”讲座通知】

时间:39日(周日)1600 1800

地点:Bowett Room, Queens' College(地图中NO. 7

http://www.queens.cam.ac.uk/mi-client/media/alumni/map-of-queens-college.pdf

讲座内容:

报告一:我们用严肃的态度热爱难题——语言学的科学性

本次讲座将扼要介绍由乔姆斯基创立的现代语言学理论的基本特征,重点展现当代语言学理论的科学性。我们将介绍理论语言学的三大核心问题,即语言习得、共时的跨语言差异以及历时的语言变化。我们将指出,此三大问题的研究必须依赖于对人类语言生物机能的探索。本讲座将凸显当代语言学家如何在人们习以为常的现象中发现难题,指出此种发现难题的能力在语言学研究中至关重要,而且重视此类能力也是当代科学研究的共同特征。

报告二:有声语言的节奏:让你的英语语音更完美

你会不会觉得,就算已经掌握了英语的各个元音和辅音,你的英语听起来还是不地道?原来,在单个音的基础上,有声语言像音乐一样,也是有它自己的韵律节奏的。我的博士项目用声学软件研究了中国学生英语语音节奏的发展,分析了对语音节奏发展有重要帮助的几个语音特征。掌握了这几个语音特征,你的英语发音会更完美哦。

演讲人:

1)胡旭辉,剑桥大学理论与应用语言学系博士生

2)李艾珂,剑桥大学理论与应用语言学系博士生

主办:剑桥东方文化协会(联系人:陶衍 07892829284

Cambridge Forum of Science and Humanities

Time: 9th Mar (Sunday), 4-6 pm

Venue: Bowett Room, Queens' CollegeSee NO. 7in the map below

http://www.queens.cam.ac.uk/mi-client/media/alumni/map-of-queens-college.pdf

Content:

1) Title: We Take Puzzles Seriously--The Scientific Nature of Linguistics

This talk aims at explaining what modern theoretical linguistics (in particular, Chomskyan Linguistics) is, and how its study of language keeps to standard norms of science. The central issues in Chomskyan linguistics, i.e. language acquisition, variation and change, will be introduced, and we will show that the study of such issues can only be fruitful when the genetic component to the language faculty is taken as the goal of linguistic research. Throughout the talk we will also highlight how linguists allow themselves to be puzzled by everyday phenomena, and why the capacity to be puzzled is a valuable one to cultivate.

2) Title: The Rhythm of Speech: Tips to Perfect your English Pronunciation

Do you feel your spoken English still sounds like Chinese, even when you have mastered all the English consonants and vowels? This talk aims to help you perfect your English pronunciation by focusing on pronunciation features beyond single sounds, in particular, speech rhythm (the music of language).Acoustic analyses of how Mandarin speakers develop their English speech rhythm were carried out. The results indicate that by focusing on the speech properties that contribute to speech rhythm, our English pronunciation can be improved.


Speakers:

(1) Xuhui HU, PhD student, Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics

(2) Aike LI, PhD student, Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics

Host: Cambridge Oriental Culture Association (Contact: Tan Yan 07892829284 )
