This course will study the principles governing language structure and its use. Both formal and applied aspects of linguistics theory will be considered. On the formal side, the sound, word and sentence structure will be studied. On the applied side, first- and second-language acquisition, historical, social, computer- and neuro-linguistics will be considered. Data will be drawn from both English and other languages. This course satisfies a math requirement for teacher certification in foreign languages.
