Recently, it has become more and more common for linguists to use experimental methods to investigate theoretical questions. This course will investigate some of the experimental methodologies being used to address questions in syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. We will discuss the methodologies themselves, as well as current debates about these methodologies (e.g., Likert scales versus magnitude estimation in acceptability judgments). We will also review some studies that use these techniques. Students will be given the chance to put these techniques into practice by proposing future studies that use these methodologies.

Students who have a knowledge of syntax and semantics will be well-prepared for this class, and students are likely to find at least one introductory course in Linguistics to be essential to success in the class.
