Linguistics

Speech, Society, & Sensation

An understanding of the science of language—linguistics—is fundamental for anyone who works with language. This course will provide students with a solid basis for understanding questions like: What is language? How do we use it? What makes sense—how do words mean something?

We ask these questions within the context of the history of our own language—English—while exploring what linguistics tells us about language learning, literacy, & more.
