ENG 2010 - Introduction to Linguistics

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENG 1020 or ENG 1021 or permission of instructor

Description: This course provides the basic analytic skills to view language from a variety of perspectives.  In addition to studying language structure (phonology, morphology, and syntax), the students will discover how languages around the world differ from one another, how children acquire language, how animal communication is distinct from human language, how people use language as a form of social identity, and how languages change over time.  Much of the course involves solving mini-language problems and discussing the relevance of language to our daily lives.
