Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

Language is arguably a most fundamental Human capacity. The field of Linguistics explores the nature of human language seeking to describe what human languages are, how languages develop and change, and how people learn and use language.

Unlike courses in a language, where the goal is to gain the ability to use the language, for example a course in French where the point is to learn how to speak French, this course will introduce you to the way linguists describe the different aspects of human language. You will learn about how the sounds of language are produced, how the words are formed, and what principles underlie the construction of words, phrases, and sentences. You also will learn about how words carry meaning and how the meaning of a sentence can be calculated from the meanings of the individual words of which it is composed. How do languages change through time? And how can linguists tell what earlier stages of a language were like in the absence of written records? You also will be introduced to some social and cultural aspects of language, including the study of English dialects like Southern and African-American English. By the end of the course you will gain an introductory understanding of what we 'know' when we 'know' a language, what language can tell us about being human, and how language is embedded in human cultures and societies.
