LIN 306 • Intro To The Study Of Language

40010 • Spring 2015
Meets TTH 1230pm-200pm CLA 0.104
show description

This course will introduce you to linguistics, the scientific study of language. How are human languages structured? Do humans have an innate capacity for language? How do children learn language? How is adult language learning different? How did the languages of the world evolve? What are the differences between verbal and non-verbal communication? Is there a "universal grammar"? How diverse and different are the languages of the world? How much does "language endangerment" and language extinction around the world affect global cultural diversity? Should every country have one "official" language? Are standard languages preferable to regional dialects? In short, this class is about everything you always wanted to know about language, and maybe a few things you never even thought to ask

LIN F372L • Syntax/Sem: Struc/Mean Utternc

85760 • Summer 2014
Meets MTWTHF 1000am-1130am CLA 0.108
show description

The goal of this course is to explore the structure and meaning of sentences in human languages. We will do this from the perspective of formal semantics, which seeks to formulate precise models of phrase and sentence meaning using tools from logic and set theory. The ultimate goal of the course is to deepen your understanding of human language. In addition, the course will equip you with a set of analytical tools that will be useful not only to understand how language works, but also in developing skills to make sense of any complex phenomenon by breaking it down into smaller pieces and clarifying the relationships between the pieces.
