AL 101 - Introduction to Language and Linguistics


This course provides an introduction to the nature and structure of human language, as well as the basic methods of its scientific study. The course is framed in terms of four guiding questions: what are the components of the language system; how do we acquire this system; how is this system used in society; and how is this system represented in the brain.
