HUL242: Fundamentals of Language Sciences

Course taught at IIT Delhi, Spring 2016

This course introduces the basic foundations of linguistic analysis for non-specialists. We take a modular approach to our understanding of language, beginning with the study of sounds and sound systems to morphology, syntax and semantics. As this is an introductory course, it will be broad in its scope, nevertheless, we will focus on specific language data sets (mainly from English and Hindi) and learn how to describe and analyze their linguistic properties. The course will consist of both lectures and tutorials; during tutorials, students will be expected to work on relatively unknown languages to extend and apply the knowledge they have learnt during the lectures.
