ENGL 5010 - Introduction to Linguistics

(3)

This course introduces students to the scientific study of language. It looks across languages to explore what they have in common, as well as what distinguishes them. Students learn basic analytic techniques in articulatory phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics and apply them to data drawn from various languages. These core concepts may be expanded and applied to other areas, such as language acquisition, language history, language and culture, language and thought, and language and literary expression. This course is designed for students with bachelor’s degrees who have been admitted to Weber State University’s MA program in English but have no upper-division undergraduate coursework in linguistics.
