The general aim of this course, Linguistics I, is to introduce the nature of language to the future foreign language teachers and help them have a general understanding of what language actually is.
With respect to the specific aims, there are several aims of this course: (1) First of all, the present course aims to familiarize them with the biological bases of language and language development in human beings and other species (e.g., animals) by presenting a thorough discussion of the differences between animal communication and human languages. (2) Secondly, this course aims to introduce the definition, content, usage and research areas of language as well as fundamental linguistic concepts. (3) Another aim of this course is to acquaint the future foreign language teachers with the sounds of English language covered in the IPA chart (International Phonetic Alphabet) and their characteristics (e.g. voiced and voiceless sounds, place of articulation, consonant sounds, manner of articulation, vowels, etc.), and the sound patterns of language (e.g. phonology, phonemes, phonemes and allophones, minimal pairs, phonotactics, syllables, coarticulation effects, etc.). (4) Fourthly, this course aims to familiarize future foreign language teachers with the traditional subfields (i.e., sub-branches) of linguistics including Phonetics (the study of the production, acoustics and hearing of speech sounds), Phonology (the patterning of sounds), Morphology (the structure of words), Syntax (the structure of sentences), and Semantics (the study of meaning), and their use in foreign language teaching. The combination of theory and practice will be stimulated through extensive analysis and investigation of linguistic data, which would also help the students develop their critical thinking skills.
The course Linguistics is offered in two semesters: Linguistics I and Linguistics II, which are offered in Fall and Spring semesters successively. The present course, Linguistics I, is a preliminary course for the introduction of the field of linguistics, in which several important selected topics are covered.
