담화분석개론/Introduction to Discourse Analysis/ENG3310




인류는 대화의 상호작용을 통해 여러 일상적인 그리고 전문적인 과제를 수행하게 된다. 수업을 운용하는 교수자의 가르침의 활동, 법정에서의 변호사의 변론, 의사와 환자와의 대화, 그리고 최근에는 인공지능과 인간과의 대화까지 담화의 중요성은 우리 사회생활의 가장 중요한 부분을 차지하고 있다. 이러한 상호작용을 이해하려면 대화의 상호작용이 어떻게 이뤄지는지를 조사하여야 하는데 전통 언어학처럼 언어의 형식만을 고집하기 보다는 대화가 구체적으로 어떻게 형성되는지 실제 담화 데이터를 통해 추적하여야 한다.


이 강의는 영어 강의로 담화가 쓰이는 여러 상황에서 나타난 데이터를 분석하는 대화분석(Conversation Analysis)의 이론적 배경과 주요 담론을 공부하고 실제 데이터의 분석을 통해 학생들이 대화에 나타난 화자와 청자의 전략과 방법 등을 분석하는 훈련을 하게 된다.


A bulk of everyday and professional works is carried out through discourse in interaction, for example, chatting among friends, classroom teaching, doctor’s interaction with patients, lawyer’s court performance, or even machine to human interaction. In examining discourse, conversation analysis (CA) proposed that social actions are accomplished through those choices speakers make in the course of interaction. Professional skills of trained doctors, successful negotiators, competent teachers and efficient interviewers are all manifested in how they interaction with their interlocutors. Learning about discourse is therefore different from what traditional linguistic courses offer as they focus on separate elements of language (e.g., study of sound in phonology, study of sentence in syntax or study of words in morphology


In order to understand social actions, therefore, we need ro examine the process by which interaction is played out in real-time discourse. In this course, you will (1) learn about conceptual precepts of conversation analysis (CA) that is considered one of the most disciplined and consistent research program in discourse study and (2) develop research skills to analyze discourse use in the real-world that matters to our everyday and professional lives.


I will use a variety of teaching methods that includes reading prior research on conversation analysis, listening to lectures, analyzing various discourse data in class, doing informal and formal writings in and outside classes, performing group works and presenting your research. In this course, you will experience what is called “learning through writing.” Writing is one of the most effective tools to learn about course content and acquire research skills. At the ends of the course, you will see some visible evidence for the improvement in argumentative writing that will be quite useful for various professional undertaking you will perform in the future.
