ANT 121 - Introduction to Language and Linguistics II[3 credit(s)]
Prerequisites: ENG 101 and ENG 102 and ANT 120, 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 121 will focus on Pragmatics, language variation, language change, and language acquisition. Cross-listed with LIN 121.
