Section Description

This course is a survey of linguistics. The major goal of the course is to introduce students to the field of linguistics, the analysis of linguistic data, and some of the broad issues surrounding the world?s languages. It emphasizes the theory and methodology of the main areas of the field (phonetics, phonology, morphology, and syntax).
