Event description

Description

An adult evening class brought to you by Lifelong Learning Dundee

Tutor: Maria Nella Carminati

Number of weeks: 8

An informal introduction to linguistics (the science of language) and some of its sub-disciplines (psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics), this course offers insights into human language, a highly complex ability we take for granted. We will consider the basic building blocks of language, how far languages of the world (including sign languages) differ, how languages change, the relationship between language and thought, how children and adults learn language, what language disorders and breakdowns tell us about the human brain, and attitudes towards language varieties and dialects in society.

Tickets will go on sale soon.
