LING 4011 - Anthropological Linguistics

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENG 2010 or ANT 2500; and junior standing; or permission of instructor

Description: This course analyzes the origins of language, its development, the similarities and the differences between natural languages in the context of various cultures and societies.  The focus is on the goals, tasks, and methods of the anthropological linguist studying the language of a foreign culture.  The class will examine data from a variety of languages in order to gain an awareness of the variation and similarities that exist in language structures around the world.  Individualized projects are required.  This course may be used as an elective to satisfy either the linguistic or the interdisciplinary requirement for the Linguistics major, but not both.
