Description

Fulfills R2 General Education requirement. This course will introduce students to basic methodology in modern theoretical linguistics. Its focus will be on the kinds of linguistic knowledge speakers possess and the mental representation of this knowledge. We will pursue questions about the structure of linguistic knowledge and principles of human languages by investigating the grammatical sequences that conform to rules of languages (syntax), patterning of sounds (phonology), structure of words (morphology), and meanings of expressions (semantics). Students will carry out introductory linguistic description and analysis. Discussions will be held on Friday.
