This course introduces the scientific study of language by systematically exploring similarities and differences across human languages. Using actual data from real languages, students will learn basic methodologies of analysis and important results from subfields of linguistics including phonetics (possible human speech sounds), phonology (language-specific systemic organization of speech sounds), morphology (word-formation processes), syntax (sentence structures), semantics (meaning), language change, and sociolinguistics. Additional topics may include sign languages, language acquisition, and/or animal communication.
