This introductory course provides insights into the workings of human languages using examples primarily drawn from English, Italian, Indonesian and Japanese. You will explore the history of human language(s), phonology (speech sounds), morphology (word formation), semantics (word meaning), pragmatics (language use in physical, social and cultural contexts), syntax (sentence construction) and orthography (scripts/writing systems). You will also investigate the factors leading to language change, loss and growth, as well as consider how to become a successful second language learner.
