Language is a fundamental aspect of our humanity. LING101 provides an introductory overview of the basic structural features of language, and the techniques used by linguists to analyse the sounds, words, and grammar of any language. It explores the role of language in society, touching on varieties of language (dialects, standards, etc) and the attitudes people have towards different kinds of language. LING101 also explores how children acquire language, and the processes adults go through as they learn a second language (first- and second- language acquisition). There is an emphasis on problem-solving and data analysis; however, you do not need to know any language other than English to undertake this unit.
Note: Students are expected to purchase prescribed material. Please note that textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
