Courses (Linguistics 615)

50:615:201 Principles of Linguistics (3) Introduction to linguistics and its areas of inquiry, such as sociolinguistics, syntax, semantics, phonetics, phonology, and morphology. Techniques of linguistic analysis and their applications to various languages.
50:615:202 Applied Linguistics (3) A survey of the applications of linguistics in various areas: the media, advertising, language acquisition, and English as a second language. Other topics include analysis of spoken discourse, language planning, and standardization.
50:615:225 Language, Class, and Culture (3) A nontechnical study of social and geographical language differences, how men's and women's speech differs, standard versus nonstandard dialects, formal and informal speech styles, bilingualism, pidgin, and creole languages.
50:615:226 Linguistics and the Urban Environment (3) This course will introduce students to the field of linguistics (the science of language), and in particular, grammar and sociolinguistics (which studies the ways in which language serves to define and maintain group identity and social relationships among speakers). We will learn about: descriptive vs. prescriptive views of language; standard vs. nonstandard dialects; language and ethnicity; language and social context (including formal and informal speech styles); language attitudes. An important component of the course will be for Rutgers students to teach the basic concepts of sociolinguistics to youth in Camden, so that they will learn about the social functions fulfilled by their own complex speech patterns.
50:615:240 Introduction to Language (3) Nontheoretical overview of basic grammatical concepts and general interest questions relating to language, such as dialects, how ordinary conversation works, the origins of language, and more.
50:615:331 Linguistics and Literature (3) Application of concepts of linguistic analysis to the interpretation of literary texts. Topics include metaphor, speech acts, politeness, inference, point of view, and speech/thought presentation.
50:615:336 Modern American Grammar (3) A linguistic approach to English grammar. Theoretical and practical implications of English phonology, morphology, and syntax.
50:615:341 Language, Power, and Politics (3) Examination of a range of political issues concerning language, including language attitudes (discrimination, "authority," and "correctness" in language), dialects/standard language ideology, political speech, language policy in the United States, advertising, gender, politically correct language, and ecolinguistics.
50:615:380 History of the English Language (3) A linguistic study of the English language at various periods of its history, the process of change from one period to another, and the relationship of English to other languages.
50:315:386 Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs (3) This is a comprehensive introduction to the language and culture of the Ancient Egyptian writing of the Middle Kingdom (and afterwards) known as the Early Middle or Classical Egyptian. No previous knowledge of grammatical terms is assumed. The material studied in class provides the students with sufficient vocabulary and grammar to read original Egyptian documents written in hieroglyphs. Prerequisite: 50:989:102.
50:615:387 Special Studies in Linguistics (3) A course in a specially selected topic. Primarily, but not exclusively, for advanced students. Courses with different topics may be repeated for credit. 
50:615:495,496 Independent Study in Linguistics (BA,BA) An opportunity for advanced students to work individually with an instructor on a self-determined course of study. The project culminates in a substantial paper. Prerequisite: 50:615:201 or permission of instructor.
