Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

• explain for the general audience what types of information we communicate through language beyond the literal meaning

• name the main loci of variation in our linguistic codes

• discuss at the current level of scientific understanding several examples of how language is employed by our culture for different purposes

• read a sophisticated linguistic research article outside of your area of direct competence: you will learn to identify what is important for you as a reader, and where and how to ask for the help of a specialist

The written exam for the class will test the above four skills.
