Ling. 112. Languages of the World.

Section 101.

Instructor(s):

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (SS).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Language is a central concern of humankind and with good reason. As the conduit for most communicative and expressive needs as well as other tasks, it pervades virtually every aspect of human existence. Few realize, however, how truly rich the linguistic universe is until they consider the variety of distinct linguistic devices and practices employed by speakers of the 5000+ individual languages that have been identified to date. Appreciating and being able to explain the range of variety of spoken and written language among various peoples of the world is an essential key to understanding human culture and diversity. This course systematically addresses many of the questions which most fascinate us about language, thus widening our intercultural horizons and enhancing our sophistication about our own language and culture. It therefore serves those who wish to learn about both our own and other societies, particular languages or regions of the world, and the nature of the human mind.

The study of language offers a way of looking at some of the most significant aspects of human experience. Language reflects and structures the way we think. It creates and is created by power relationships expressed through gender, race, class, and geography. Language offers us avenues for resistance as well as oppression. Through this course we will attempt to understand the many different roles language plays in our social and psychological lives. At the same time we will also learn some of the fundamentals of language structure which are basic to an appreciation of large-scale language issues. Course assignments will likely include homework and hourly exams. There will be a combination of course texts including background information as well as a selection of readings.
