In this course, offered by the Communication Studies department, students study the nature of human language by examining four major components: phonology, semantics, syntax, and morphology. Linguistics principally emphasizes linguistic universals, characteristics which all human languages share. Students discuss dialect formation, first-language acquisition in children, and animal communication systems. Students also compare modern linguistic theories.
