Linguistic Science

Min-Joo Kim

This course provides an introduction to the study of language at the undergraduate level. We will learn about the set of underlying principles of human language by analyzing the English language in detail. We will first examine the main components of language, namely, word forms, sounds, sentence structure and meaning, and then investigate language variation (e.g., African American English or Ebonics , Texas English, Spanish English), bilingualism, and language acquisition. Our approach will be descriptive rather than prescriptive, which means that we will analyze what is actually spoken by people.

For this purpose, students will read a significant portion of the Bible and be exposed to various theories of Biblical hermeneutics. The result of the course should be an enriched appreciation of the literary qualities of the Bible as well as an increased familiarity with the book and with diverse ways of interpreting it.
