301 Basic Language Concepts for Second Language Learning, Teaching, and Use

Second Language Studies investigates how people learn and use another language, be it a second, third, heritage, or foreign language. In order to do so, we first need terminology and tools that allow us to capture and describe the phenomenon we are concerned with: human language. Through this course, students establish a basic linguistic toolkit for describing language, including learner language, at various levels: sounds, words, sentences, and discourse.
