LING – Linguistics

LING 100
Introduction to Human Language
3 Credits          Weekly (3-0-0)

This course is an introduction to how human language works: how it is structured, learned, used, studied, and how it changes through time. Examples from English and other languages around the world are discussed. Note: LING 100 makes a nice complement to LING 101, but neither course is a prerequisite or a co-requisite for the other. This course does not fulfill the analytical component of the Arts degree.

LING 101
Introduction to Linguistic Analysis
3 Credits          Weekly (3-0-0)

Linguistics is best known as the “scientific study of language.”  This course introduces both language as a general phenomenon and the methodology of modern descriptive linguistics.  The course of study covers the fundamental topics of phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. Note: This Arts course can be used to satisfy the general science requirement of the Bachelor of Science.

LING 204
Syntax of English
3 Credits          Weekly (3-0-0)

This course covers linguistic analysis of the syntax of modern English, including discussion of both the regularities and irregularities at the word, phrase, clause, and sentence level of structure.
