Course Description: This course introduces students to Linguistics, which is the study of human language as an aspect of human cognition and social organisation. Despite enormous diversity across languages of the world, there are also features common to all languages. Linguists are interested in discovering the universal features of human languages, as well as accounting for variability across the world's languages. Students focus especially on words and sentences: How can one describe their structure? How can one study their meaning and use? How do words and sentences change over time? How does one study variation in the use and structure of words and sentences? How does the study of words and sentences help to understand the universal and variable features of human language?
