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 aimed at people who are just starting French linguistic studies as well as to advanced level students willing to improve and systematize their knowledge by means of a structured reflection on some fundamental concepts of general linguistics.
An introduction to a complex discipline can be dealt with different approaches. While proposing a view of the organization and functioning of the human language, presenting the main notions of modern linguistics and the principal research fields, we will divide the present course into four wide areas: phonetics and phonology, morphology, lexical semantics, and semantics of the enunciation (enunciative and pragmatic approach).
No previous knowledge of linguistics is required.
