Dersin Amacı

Linguistics II is a continuation of Linguistics I, and the general aim of this course is to build upon the knowledge that the future foreign language teachers gain in Linguistics I (which is offered in the Fall semester).


More specifically, the aims of this course comprise the following: One of the aims of this course is (1) to familiarize future foreign language teachers with the traditional subfields (i.e., sub-branches) of linguistics including Pragmatics (language in context) and Discourse Analysis, and their use in foreign language teaching. Furthermore, it aims (2) to familiarize the students with the relationship between language and the brain as well as to help them learn the concepts and principles of Neurolinguistics. (3)  It also aims to teach the underlying processes and different theories that account for not only first language acquisition but also second language acquisition/learning. (4) The course also aspires to help the student to gain a firm understanding of language history, its change over time, and the diversity of languages with a focus on the English language. Within this scope, it is also aimed to teach the different accents and dialects of English spoken around the world. Moreover, (5) another aim is to help the students comprehend the influence of regional, social, and cultural factors on language. Lastly, (6) it aims to teach the relationship among language, culture, and society by focusing on the discussion of how closely they are intertwined and interdependent.

Dersin İçeriği

This course (Linguistics II) is a continuation of ELT 203 Linguistics I, and primarily focuses on the process of language development and change. The content of the course includes having a thorough understanding of the processes of first language acquisition and second language acquisition/learning. The course starts with a brief revision of the sub-branches covered in Linguistics I (Phonetics, Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, and Semantics). Subsequent to the revision, it continues elaborating upon the other subfields (i.e., sub branches) of linguistics including Pragmatics and Discourse Analysis. Afterward, the field of Neurolinguistics and the relationship between language and the brain (language areas in the brain, tongue tips and slips, aphasia, the critical period) are covered in depth. The relevance of the field of linguistics to language acquisition theories and language teaching methods is also among the topics covered in this course. The course content also elaborates upon how languages develop as well as the theoretical perspectives on how first language acquisition and second language acquisition/learning take place. Accordingly, the underlying processes and different theories that account for both first language acquisition and second language acquisition/learning are covered briefly. The remainder of the course focuses on language history and change, language families, and the influence of regional, social, and cultural factors on language, all of which are discussed in depth. The history of English including Old English, Middle English, Early Modern and Modern English as well as the diversity of languages, and different accents and dialects of English are also elaborated upon within this course. The relationship among language, culture, and society is among the contents which are covered as a part of this course.
