Course description: Almost everything people do involves language at some point, whether it be buying a garri, chairing a board meeting or making a friend. It is essential to human society and endeavours. People often think that Linguistics involves learning languages. In fact, it is about understanding the workings of language.
Why is it that we have different languages Why do they change over time What is the best way to learn or teach a language How does the language of literature differ from other kinds of language A Linguistics degree connects the study of language to real-world problems and their solutions. It can, therefore, prepare you for a variety of careers.
The goal of linguistics as a course is the enrichment of knowledge about the nature, grammar, and history of human language. Linguistics is a theoretical and applied discipline, akin to philosophy, anthropology, and cognitive psychology. The core areas of linguistic theory are phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. A grammar is a system of rules that characterize the phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics of a natural language.
The properties of grammars are the central focus of linguistic theory. Because language is central to all humanistic disciplines, as well as to several social science areas, it is studied from many points of view. Linguistics itself cannot be said to recognize a single optimal approach to the subject; hence the courses provide a variety of approaches that reflect the diversity of the field
