Course Catalog Description:
Scientific study of human language. Methods, questions, findings, and perspectives of modern linguistics. Components of the language system (phonetics/phonology, syntax, semantics/pragmatics); language acquisition; language/social variables; language/cognition; language change; language processing; language/public policy.
Class Description:
This course is a general introduction to the various subfields of linguistics, the discipline devoted to the nature of human language, its basis in cognition, and its role in human affairs. The main emphasis in the course will be on the structural components of language: syntax (phrase and sentence structure), morphology (word structure), phonology (sound structure), and semantics/pragmatics (meaning). Students will learn about how human languages can differ from one another and how they are alike; they will also learn basic techniques for describing and analyzing linguistic data through working on examples taken from various languages of the world. An understanding of structural components of language will also serve as the basis for an introduction to subfields of linguistics concerned with how languages change over time (historical linguistics, the nature and cause of regional and social variation and diversity within a given language (sociolinguistics), how languages are learned by children and by adults learning a second language (language acquisition), and the biological basis of language in the brain (neurolinguistics). The course will be conducted through lectures and discussions. Course requirements include regular assignments, a midterm and a final. Target audience is anyone with an interest in the nature of human language.
