The first week of the class we will focus on the basic elements of language and discus morphology (how words are formed). What is language? Why does it exist? How is it used? The second week we will discus syntax (how sentences are structured) and phonetics (how sounds are pronounced). We will analyze these aspects of language through the lens of a variety of languages.

Studying linguistics not only helps expand your world view, it can help provide a better understanding of your own language as well as any secondary languages you may be learning. This class may help you get to that ah-ha moment in your English or foreign language class. Linguistics provides a foundation to allow you to more quickly and efficiently learn new languages. I have a B.A. in Spanish with a concentration in Spanish linguistics. In addition to Spanish, I study German and American Sign Language. I love learning languages and I am constantly amazed at the complexity of human language. I hope by taking this class, you too will develop a love of languages!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
