This course will provide an introduction to theoretical linguistics addressing basic questions about the nature of human language. It will focus on the linguistic knowledge needed to speak a language, and how this knowledge is represented in the brain. Topics we will pursueinclude observing the principles at work that allow speakers to combine words into sentences (syntax), identify the patterns of sound (phonology), form sound patterns into words (morphology), and decipher the meaning of sentences (semantics). Students will engage in linguistic description and analysis.
