Class Description:
This course is an introduction to the scientific study of human language. The course offers basic technical skills and foundational concepts required for language analysis, as well as an enhanced awareness of the goals, problems and promise of linguistic inquiry.Emphasis will be on the structure of human language. General questions include: what are the basic properties of human language? How do languages differ and how are they all alike? To what extent is human language part of the biological endowment of all humans and to what extent must it be learned? We will examine data from a variety of languages at the level of sound, sentence structure, meaning and use, exploring variation and similarity both across and within anguages. Specific topics include: phonetics and phonology (how do we describe and analyze the sounds and sound patterns of human languages?), morphology and syntax (what are the structures of words and sentences?), semantics and pragmatics (how do we interpret language?) We will also discuss topics in historical-comparative linguistics (how do languages change over time, how are they related to one another and what methods are used in determining such relationships?), language acquisition (how are languages learned, by children as a first language and by children and adults as a second language?), and the relation between language and culture.
