Q: What is linguistics?
A: It’s the study of language, its structures, and the way it works.
We’re pleased to be re-introducing into the Wesleyan curriculum an introductory course on Linguistics, to be taught by Prof. Louise Neary in Spring 2017. This course will introduce students to some of the principal areas like phonology (the study of the sounds of language),morphology (the structure of words), syntax (the structure of sentences) and semantics (the meaning of language).
This course has no prerequisites and will be interesting for anyone curious about how and why humans make the sounds we make.
Check out Wesmaps for more info. Offered M & W—2:50-4:10 p.m.
