LING 2700 - The Nature of Language


A broad look at the nature of language. The focus is on human language in general: characteristics, acquisition, meaning, social use, and tendencies for change in language. Language is an everyday experience for all of us. We use language to convey our most basic needs and to express our most profound hopes. We rarely give a second thought to this tool whose use generally comes to us so effortlessly. This course will help you understand and appreciate the complexity and sophistication that underlies this system we depend on so much.
