Parallel zu diesem Kurs muss die Vorlesung "Essentials of English Linguistics" besucht werden, da das Modul "Grundlagen der Sprachwissenschaft I" beide Veranstaltungen beinhaltet und abprüft.

This class introduces students to the various fields of linguistics, their pertinent methods and terminology. The course thus offers a survey of the study of English on different linguistic levels, beginning with its sounds (phonetics/phonology), moving on to an analysis of the form, structure and meaning of words (morphology, lexicology, semantics) and of sentences (syntax) towards an analysis of discourse and language use (pragmatics). An introduction to the analysis of regional or social varieties of language (sociolinguistics) and to the principles of historical linguistics will round off this survey.
