LING 301 Introduction to Linguistics

This course is designed as a solid introduction to and overview of the field of linguistics. Students will explore a number of topics that are at the core of linguistics. We begin with a theoretical background in subfields such as syntax, morphology, phonology, and phonetics. Then we move to broader issues such as sociolinguistics, language acquisition, psycho/neurolinguistics, and historical linguistics. Not normally open to first-year students.
