Schedule, Workshop


Physics of walking around the house. A set of physics experiences related to the uses and customs of daily life is presented

Inventor/a.  A roulette wheel with different inventions will be presented and you will wonder if it was inventor or inventor who carried it out.

Is he a Murcian or a Martian?. In this activity several sound registers are proposed, some of which contain phonetic characteristics of the murciano (opening of vowels, elision of /-s/) and others not, although they may be similar. The test consists in differentiating the Murcian speech samples from others that may or may not be more or less similar. In theoretical terms, the ultimate objective of this experiment is to determine the phonological inventory of the Murcian, that is, the number of minimal pieces with distinctive function, or phonemes. The scientific discipline that deals with this aspect is phonology.

Who do you love more?. Workshop consisting of a form at the end of which the person will know his degree of loyalty to the Murcian, which is determined by the degree of covert prestige. The scientific discipline that deals with this aspect is sociolinguistics.

Where are you from?. In this activity participants will be asked to represent their map of the Murcian indicating the varieties they believe exist, as well as their geographical distribution. The scientific discipline that studies this aspect is perceptual dialectology.
