LING7009 Language Structure for Teaching and Learning
Prof. Diana Archangeli & Dr. O.Lam
MA Elective course. Sem 2
Monday, 6:00 – 9:00 pm (Venue: CPD-LG.61)
Learning a foreign language can be daunting; teaching a foreign language to bewildered students can be frustrating. This course is for the teacher and learner alike; we will look at general properties of how language is structured — both generically and through specific examples — starting with the sounds that make up languages and moving to how those sounds form word, how those words form sentences, and how those sentences are interpreted to have both specific and contextual meanings.
