LIN/ENG 211: Introduction to Linguistics

This course is an introduction to the scientific study of human language, with an emphasis on the fundamental principles of linguistic theory, and applications of these principles in the investigation of grammatical structure. Through the course of the semester, you will learn to analyze the primary areas of grammar found in all human languages. These will include phonetics (the production and perception of language sounds), phonology (the ways in which sounds are organized in a language), morphology (the structure of words), syntax (the ways in which words are combined into sentences), and semantics (how language conveys meaning). Credit will not be given to students who already have credit for ENG 414G. (Same as ENG 211.)
