Introduction to Linguistics

Introduction à la linguistique / An Introduction to Linguistics

This course is meant to be a first contact with the principles and methods of linguistic analysis. Involving an introduction to linguistics, this course is appropriate for those begining their French linguistic studies as well as to advanced level students willing to increase and systematize their knowledge by means of a structured reflection on certain fundamental concepts of general linguistics.
An introduction to a complex discipline can be dealt with through different approaches. While proposing a view of the organization and functioning of the human language, presenting the great notions of modern linguistics and the main research fields, we will divide the present course into four broad areas: phonetics and phonology, morphology, lexical semantics, and semantics of the enunciation (enunciative and pragmatic approach).

No previous knowledge of linguistics is required.
