ANT 345 - Language and Meaning

(4 credits)
Prerequisite(s): ANT 120 /LIN 120  or ENG 311 /LIN 311  or permission of the instructor. This course familiarizes students with a broad spectrum of key concepts, issues, and analytical tools in the study of meaning in natural language, with an emphasis on non-formalist approaches. The focus is on how linguists approach the study of natural language semantics, particularly as it influences and organizes morphosyntactic structure. To serve as a background to the course, important complementary viewpoints are briefly discussed, including traditional semantic concerns of philosophers of language, as well as semiotic perspectives on meaning and communication.
