Pre-departure session dates: TBD
Explore the diversity and complexity of language. Examine the key building blocks of all human language--phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics. See these components at work in social contexts as we learn about and discuss various aspects of language variation, language change, and language acquisition. Question assumptions about language and consider the relationships between language and cultural attitudes. Barcelona will offer us a unique opportunity to explore aspects of language in a new environment and to compare English to Catalan and to Spanish throughout.
