Why should you choose this course?

Description

This course appreciates linguistics as an academic discipline that focuses on the understanding of what is natural language and what does systematicity of language comparison deals with. Following the typological approach, this course investigates both the structure (form) and usage (function) of language. Because of its focus on the issue of language typology, this course deals with the languages of the world in terms of the grammatical features they have in common. This eventually leads to the discussion on language types and their implications. The data from various language families (with a special mention to South Asian Languages) will be examined in the class which will help the participants to understand how various grammatical constructions are realized in different languages.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Any Interested Learners
PREREQUISITES: Any bachelor degree
