ANT 120 - Introduction to Language and Linguistics[3 credit(s)]
Prerequisites: ENG 101 and ENG 102, or with the permission of the instructor. This course provides an introduction to the properties of human languages and to their systematic study in the field of linguistics. It provides the groundwork for future studies of language and communication in a broad range of disciplines: linguistics, modern languages, ESL, communication, sociolinguistics, and anthropological linguistics. It is assumed that students have had no prior course work or exposure to linguistics and will begin with the basic assumptions that are shared by those who study language from a variety of perspectives. ANT/LIN 120 will focus on phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. Cross-listed with LIN 120.
