LINGUISTICS COURSE DESCRIPTION:
In this course, students will learn linguistics, or the scientific study of language. Linguists use the scientific method to discover the underlying structure of language, similarities and differences between the world’s languages, and how language is created and processed by the human mind. Throughout the span of the course, students will investigate the structure of several world languages; however, the course will give particular emphasis to Mandarin, Latin, Spanish, and French preparing students to choose a foreign language in 8th grade. In each unit, students will use data from these languages to investigate a different subdomain of linguistics. Thus, this course will build a strong foundational understanding of language, not only of English but foreign languages as well, making students better prepared for foreign language study the following year.
