This course is a survey of linguistics. The major goal of the course is to introduce students to the field of linguistics, the analysis of linguistic data, and the history and use of human language. It emphasizes the theory and methodology of the main areas of the field: phonetics, phonology, morphology, and syntax. Students will analyze data samples from the world’s languages in terms of their sound segments, sound patterns, word structure, and sentence structure. The remainder of the course will be divided among other areas of linguistics, including semantics, sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, language acquisition, and the biological basis of language.
