Course Description

This course is an introduction to the scientific study of human language, a prerequisite for further study in linguistics/speech-language pathology. We will cover the basic areas of linguistic grammar: phonetics, phonology, morphology and syntax. Students may also have the opportunity to explore applications of linguistic theory to questions about language change (historical linguistics), first language acquisition (how children learn language), second language learning (how adults learn a second language), sign languages, language and the brain (psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics), and computational linguistics.
