How to do things with words
Lehrstuhl für Angewandte Sprachwissenschaft (Anglistik)
Research in applied linguistics at the university of augsburg is anchored firmly to functional and empirical approaches to language and language use. the focus of investigation lies on the following questions:
- how do interlocutors do things with words?
- how do interlocutors do things with words in a second language?
- how do interlocutors do things with words in intercultural communication?
- what is discourse, and how is discourse used in particular contexts?

The project examines the discursive value of the first-order concept of ordinary in the context of public talk media, as well as the discursive strategies and their intended perlocutionary effects for the discursive construction of ordinariness as an object of talk in mediated public talk, through the positioning of self and other speakers as ordinary and non-ordinary.
