Lin/Eng 221: Intro to Linguistics I: Theoretical foundations and analysis

( time & loc: TBA)

This course is the first semester of an intensive two-course introductory sequence to the scientific study of human language, geared primarily for majors and minors in Linguistics. Through frequent practice of linguistic analysis in the form of problem sets, LIN/ENG 221 will provide students with a core foundation in Linguistics, examining the five components of grammar: phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics.

Lin 500: Phonetics

( time & loc: TBA)

Humans have the uncanny ability to convert thoughts into vibrating air molecules, perceive minute patterns of vibration happening around their heads, and translate those vibrations back into thoughts! Nothing any science fiction author could ever write about mind reading could be as amazing, intricate, or subtle as speech. This course introduces students to the study of speech production and perception and the nature of the acoustic signal that is transmitted from speaker to listener.
