TEAE 4500 - Linguistics (TN eCampus)

(3 credits)
This course is designed: 1. to introduce future or in-service language teachers and professionals to a basic understanding of the structure and function of the interrelated systems of syntax, pragmatics, phonetics, phonology, and semantics, both for languages in general and English specifically; 2. to learn to apply that knowledge to work more effectively with language students; 3. to acquire the basic analytical skills applied linguists use to investigate new linguistic situations and data as they are encountered in real-world teaching; and 4. most importantly, to make the participants aware of the vast unconscious linguistic insights they already possess and to help them learn to tap those resources to use in teaching.
