Study of the structures and conventions of language use in context, including the social meaning of language variation. Course will offer a foundational “tool box” for working with language (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics). Attention will be given to both the functions of language in context (style, grammar, rhetoric, semantics, constraints, discourse, and genre) and historical, geographical and cultural variations in usage.
