Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This lecture course forms the first part of a one-year introductory programme which will show how human language works to project individual identity and express social meaning. We will therefore begin by looking at how speech sounds are used to convey linguistic meaning and individual identity. In order to achieve this we shall study the best ways of describing and transcribing the sounds and sound systems of English and other languages. We shall then consider how language varies to reflect different social and geographical factors and how this variation may be described and represented in theoretical models. Finally we shall examine how language functions in communication and how humans use language to create meaning.
Assessment: a written examination of 80 minutes
