ANT 106 - Language and Culture - Linguistic Anthro (1)

This class presents a broad survey of linguistic anthropology, focusing on language as a form of human behavior. We explore the nature and function of human language learning the ways that language reflects and informs social life. Core topics include differences between human and animal communication, ways that language functions as a formal system, language patterns that differ cross culturally, and social strategies that reflect power relationships. We address such subjects as nonverbal communication, folklore, spoken art, dialects, language origin, language acquisition and language change, including into the electronic age. This course provides you the opportunity to connect theoretical perspectives with everyday communication and understand the significance of language in your own personal and professional life.
