Language Studies

This guide will help you start your research for Language Studies classes and projects.

Build a strong search

A good search term is the key to effectively and rapidly finding information in databases.  Here are some tips:

  •  Be specific. Consider including synonyms for a specific terminology.  For example, the term ‘syllables’ is more precise than 'speech sounds'. 
  •  Link your terms in specific ways. Using AND, OR, NOT can structure the search engines' assumptions about the order in which the terms should appear in a webpage.  For example: Pitch movement AND Intonation
  • Consider using the Search Guide or Help available in databases.
