Introduction to Language and Linguistics

Back to "Fall 2013" courses

The eyes may be the mirror of the soul, but language is the mirror of the mind. Linguists study the structure of language to understand the complex computations that we do unconsciously every time we speak or comprehend utterances. This class will offer an introduction to the scientific analysis of human language, including the study of sound patterns, word formation, sentence structure, and the mental representation of linguistic knowledge.

Mondays and Wednesdays 11:00-11:50am
