Linguistics Minor

English Linguistics and Writing Studies
College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Undergraduate free-standing minor
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2018
  • Required credits in this minor: 20
This minor emphasizes two important facets of human language—the mathematical and social aspects of language. To understand the formal mathematical nature of human language, courses are offered in the areas of phonology, morphology, and syntax. The issues of language as social phenomena are dealt with in diverse, socio-cultural linguistics courses. After minoring in linguistics, students will achieve a high level of analytical ability, which is necessary not only in linguistics, but also in many other related fields, including computer science, mathematics, philosophy, and psychology.

LING 1811 - Introduction to Linguistics (LE CAT2, LOGIC & QR)
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Fall, Spring & Summer
Provides an introduction to a theoretical study of the nature of natural language, using examples primarily from present-day English. Students are expected to learn analytical skills to understand how human languages (and the human mind) work and how the sub-components (sounds, words, sentences and meaning) of natural languages are systematically organized.
LING 3102 - Syntax
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Periodic Fall & Spring
Deals with how sentences are structured. After discussing lexical categories (parts of speech) and phrasal structures from a scientific perspective, several different theories are introduced under the blanket name Generative Grammar. Based on Generative Grammar, students learn how to analyze English sentence structures to understand universal properties of natural language. prereq: 1811 or instructor consent
ENGL 5821 - History of the English Language
Credits: 4.0 [max 4.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Fall
History of sounds, word stock, and structures of English language from earliest records to present.
LING 2101 - Phonetics and Phonology (NAT SCI)
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Fall
This course, which is rooted in biology and physics, focuses on the sound systems of the languages of the world. What do these systems have in common? How do they differ from one another? There is an immense amount of variation across languages, but it is far from random, and this assumption is the driving factor of the course. Students will learn the anatomy of the vocal tract and the means of speech articulation, and they will learn to produce every possible sound of every possible human language. They will also analyze the acoustic signals resulting from speech articulation and how these acoustic results are perceived by hearers. Along the way, student learn to analyze large amounts of phonetic data, both by hand and electronically and to understand when a difference in speech sounds can change the meaning of a message as opposed to simply changing as a result of contextual effects. In short, when are speech sounds meaningful, and what does this tell us about the way the human language faculty is organized? The scientific approach taken here will teach students a great deal about their own language. It will also teach students a great deal about the diversity of languages in the world: how they differ, but more importantly, what they all have in common, and what it is that makes them all human.
LING 2195 - Special Topics: (Various Titles to be Assigned)
Credits: 3.0 [max 6.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud

Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Prerequisites: WRIT 1120
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Spring
Different from a traditional linguistic approach, language and its system will be examined with emphasis on writing, as opposed to speech. Based on the formal theoretical foundations of language and linguistics, three main topics are discussed in detail. First, the world's major writing systems and a short history of writing are introduced. Second, the English sentence structures are studied from a contemporary theoretical and historical linguistic perspective. Third, language use in writing is discussed in various genres. prereq: WRIT 1120
LING 2600 - Language in Society (SOC SCI)
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud

Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Prerequisites: 1811 or instructor consent
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Periodic Fall & Spring
Phonology is a grammar of sound for a language. The phonological component of a language is the system of rules, representations and principles that govern the patterning of sounds. To understand the general patterns of sounds, students are expected to analyze data across the language families pre-theoretically. This pre-theoretical analysis will be scientifically explained within modern phonological theories. prereq: 1811 or instructor consent
LING 3103 - Semantics and Pragmatics
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud

This course will provide an introduction to the study of what is said (semantics) and what is meant (pragmatics) in natural language. It will provide an introduction to set theory, first- and higher- order logic, and lexical semantics. It will also cover pragmatic topics such as presupposition, implicature, and speech act theory. Beyond these basic topics, the course will focus on specific sub-topics from time to time such as negation, reference, information structure, reported speech, genre, and so on. prereq: 1811
LING 3201 - Language and Gender
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Periodic Fall, Spring & Summer
This course is concerned with relations between gender and language structure, use, and change. Taking data from English and many other languages, the course will address questions such as: Do women and men use language differently. Do they use different language? If so, why and what are the differences? What can this tell us about underlying cultures? Is there such a thing as Gay speech? When is gendered language acquired by children? How do these questions play out across a range of situations and institutions, including the criminal justice system medical fields, business environment, and so on, as well as across cultures? We will also be concerned with the nature of language change over time, and the roles gender plays in this area as well. The course will be primarily lecture and discussion, and students will gain experience gathering and analyzing data across a range of situations and media. pre-req: Preferred LING 1811 or LING 2600
LING 3203 - Linguistics and Social Media
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Periodic Fall, Spring & Summer
This course examines the structure and use of language across a wide range of social media platforms, such as texting, Facebook, e-mail, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, blogs and more. Rooted in theories of discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, and pragmatics, this course looks at how structural limitations steer the functions of the various media at the same time as engendering creativity among users. Similarly, the course investigates the ways in which online communities construct and maintain identities through language use, and in so doing, sheds light on the linguistic behavior of traditional community groups as well. Students will gain experience collecting large amounts of electronic data and performing quantitative analyses on it as well as performing ethnographic descriptions of online communities, Students will also examine the way interpersonal relationship develop and are maintained through the linguistic conventions of the various media. The class will consist of lecture, discussion groups, and a significant among of hands-on experience in an extended final project. pre-req: LING 1811 or LING 2600 or instructor consent
