Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This lecture forms the second part of a one-year introductory programme that aims at providing first-year students of English with an overview of the major areas of linguistic knowledge and will complement the topics discussed in the course Introduction to the study of language 1. After giving an overview of the scope of linguistics and revisting phonetics and phonology, we will analyse the internal architecture of words (morphology). We will then investigate the meanings of words and sentences (semantics) and consider different approaches to grammar, studying how words combine to form phrases and sentences (syntax). Furthermore, the course will address how language is processed and stored (psycholinguistics).

Assessment and permitted materials

written examination (part 1 is multiple choice)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students will be familiar with the basic principles of suprasegmental phonology, semantics, syntax, pragmatics, discourse analysis and first and second language acquisition. They will be able to apply their knowledge to English texts including transcription tasks
