Course Description

Linguistics is the study of both language and languages - that is, the object of study can be human language in general and an individual language like English, respectively or in conjunction. As every participant in this class will be a competent language user, our conscious or implicit knowledge of language will form a starting point from which we will depart to the various levels of linguistic description. These will be introduced in a survey spanning two semesters.

This semester’s module will focus on questions of language and meaning, namely

  • semantics (the study of meaning - both of words and sentences)
  • pragmatics (the study of utterances and their meaning)
  • Language variation
Course Requirements

Credits will be awarded on the basis of a “portfolio”, which will include:

  • written work (assignments and tests),
  • a group or team project from a range of topics to be presented at the conclusion.
