This course offers a broad overview of language and the psychological and social phenomena associated with its use. Linguistics is the scientific study of language systems and language use in form, meaning, and context. In this course, we will examine language structures, such as Phonetics and Phonology (sound systems), Morphology (word formation), and Syntax (combinatory properties). In addition, we will discuss cognitive/neurological issues such as language in the brain, animal communication, and language acquisition. Lastly, this course will approach societal issues, including Pragmatics (language in context), language/dialectal variation and language change. As a whole, this course seeks to establish what language is and how it is used in human interaction. Instructor: TBA
