Linguistic Universals and Language Diversity

Back to "Spring 2013" courses

The study of human language from the perspective of linguistic universals. This course will demonstrate that, contrary to initial impressions, languages of the world do not differ arbitrarily and without limit. All human languages share a common core (universals). We must explain why there are linguistic universals and how languages can differ (diversity).

Mondays and Wednesdays 3:00-4:20pm
