At the core of contact between humans is face-to-face interaction. In recent years there has been substantial scholarly interest in conversation from scholars in anthropology, communication, education, linguistics, psychology, and sociology. This grows out of the recognition that conversation is not merely a conduit for information but a site for the expression of institutional identities, gender and power. This course introduces students to principles for the study of conversation. The course will cover such topics as cultural uses of silence and talk, politeness, how we save face through talk,age, gender, race and ethnicity as factors in communication, talk in institutions (doctors and patients, the classroom and the court) and causes and consequences of miscommunication. We'll also consider how research on conversation has been translated into advice on how to catch a man or keep a mate. The course incorporates the regular use of video data and film for the analysis of conversation.

From time immemorial human beings have been curious about what appears to be a uniquely human possession, human language — about its structure, its diversity, its use, and its effects on others. This course explores the human capacity for language. We begin with a discussion of the uniqueness of human language and then review major aspects of language structure common to all human languages: sound systems, words and their meanings, sentence structures and meaning. We will then examine child language development, speech perception, and language change; finally, we will extend our results to discussions of language variation, including social and political attitudes toward language (for instance, what is "Standard English", and is it better than other dialects of English? And should English become the official national language of the United States?). Course requirements include regular homework assignments, one midterm exam, and a final exam.
