(3)This course offers insight into one of the most fundamental parts of being human: the ability to communicate through language. Whether it's telling a joke, writing a song, naming a baby, or speaking to a relative with a speech impairment, language use is bound up with nearly everything humans do. While examining how words operate in spoken and written contexts-and how our understanding of this phenomenon has changed over time-students will learn and practice ways language facilitates thinking while shaping perception.
Prerequisite(s): ENG 200.
