LING 2010Q-005: The Science of Linguistics

Instructor: Kadir Gokgoz

Linguistics is the scientific study of human language. We will cover four major components of Linguistics. These are (i) phonology (sound system of language), (ii) morphology (putting together smallest units of meaning/function), (iii) syntax (building phrases and sentences) and (iv) semantics (how meaning is composed).

What make the honors section different are emphasis on in-depth data analysis and a short term project which will help students practice their analytical skills and gain some research experience respectively. Each class will include discussion of the readings assigned for that week, additional material presented by the instructor, and exercises.
