This course is an introduction to linguistics (the scientific study of language) and focuses on the traditional core areas of language structure including: the sound system (phonetics and phonology), morphology (word structure), syntax (clause and sentence structure), and meaning (semantics and pragmatics). You will have the opportunity to work with linguistic data from English and a wide range of different languages. You will learn to analyse language using appropriate linguistic concepts and terminology and to argue the merits of that analysis.
