This course offers an introduction to the scientific examination of human languages by searching for answers to the questions, what does someone know when they know a language? How do they get that knowledge? The study of linguistics knowledge is divided into several areas: the study of sounds and their patterns (phonetics) and (phonology), words (morphology), sentences (syntax/grammar) and meanings (semantics and pragmatics). Linguistics also studies how linguistic knowledge is applied in social situations in different cultures (sociolinguistics), and how people learn languages (language acquisition and the role of the brain).
