ML 201 - Exploring Language: An Introduction to Linguistics

(3.00 cr.)

An examination of the rule-based nature of language. Includes the study of basic English structures (morphological, phonological, syntactic) and practice in analyzing them. Other languages will also be used as examples depending, in part, on the interests and preparation of the students. Further topics covered are the relationship between writing and speaking; the idea of "correctness" in language; language change and variation in social and historical contexts; language and communication; and the concept of language in popular thought.
