How social networks influence our linguistic behaviour

讲座时间:2019年11月7日,15:30- 17:00

A growing body of 21st-century research has sought to integrate methods and techniques from different fields of science in order to further our understanding of the world and the governing principles therein. A method which has been increasingly applied in addressing these cross-disciplinary questions is social network analysis (SNA), consisting in investigating social structures through the prism of graph theories.
Social networks play a vital role in the attainment of individuals. The talk will present the results of two projects applying SNA to language phenomena. One involves exploring the social spread of neologisms online; the other, the influence of peer interactions among L2learners on their language progress.
Social network analysis can provide new insights into the link between social relations, language change, and language acquisition, demonstrating for instance how social network configuration and peer interaction dynamics are stronger predictors of second language performance than individual factors, and offer a novel methodology for investigating other language phenomena.
