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 and 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 that most fascinate us about language, thus widening our intercultural horizons and enhancing our sophistication about our own language and culture. Therefore, the course serves those students 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.

Of all human traits, language is probably the one which most sets us apart from other animals. This course will introduce you the field of linguistics: the scientific study of human language. First you will learn techniques for analyzing the sounds, words, structures, and meanings found in language. You will discover not only what types of features distinguish one language from another, but also what properties are (supposedly) universal to all human languages. After acquiring some tools of linguistic analysis, we will turn to social aspects of language, including the study of dialects like Southern and African-American English, the meaning of "standard" English, and the nature of language change and language death. We will also discuss some real-world applications of linguistics in education, the treatment of language disorders, and computer technology. Coursework will consist of regular homework assignments and an exam.
