|LING 1150 - Introduction to Language and Linguistics|
Introduces students to their tacit linguistic knowledge of word structure (morphology), sentence structure (syntax), meaning (semantics), and speech sounds (phonetics and phonology). This structural knowledge is the basis for exploring the social dimensions of language: geographic dialects (e.g., Boston speech), Black English (Ebonics), men’s and women’s language, as well as biological questions of nature vs. nurture, language acquisition, and animal communication.
