1100 The Basics of Learning a Language

GE social science individuals and groups; diversity global studies course
The goal of the course is to provide students with important tools to help them become successful language learners. Students will become familiar with basic elements of language such as parts of speech and the pronunciation of new sounds as a means of enabling them to anticipate and effectively deal with problems in pronunciation, vocabulary building and sentence formation that often come up in foreign language study. Students will also learn how languages differ in terms of, for example, swearing, politeness and body language. They will also learn about different language teaching and learning styles, typical mistakes language learners make, and strategies for making language learning more effective. This information will be presented in the context of the wide variety of languages taught at OSU, thus allowing students to become familiar with some of the more than 30 languages taught on campus.

2000/H2000 Introduction to Language in the Humanities

GE cultures and ideas course
This course examines language as a system of human communication. It also provides students with the tools needed for the recording, investigation, and close analysis of language. The course consists of a general survey of language and linguistics. A number of topics relating to man's knowledge and use of language are systematically investigated. Examples are drawn primarily from the English language, although other 1anguages are used to illustrate certain concepts. Nevertheless, the focus of the course is not on any specific language or languages; rather, it is on properties common to all lan¬guages and on ways in which languages may differ.

2001 Language and Formal Reasoning

Prereq: Math 075 or equiv, or Math placement level R.

GE quantitative reasoning math and logical analysis course.
The goal of this course is to lead students to think analytically about syntax, meaning, and reasoning in terms abstract enough to encompass both natural languages (like English) and artificial formal languages (in this case, first-order logic) to see underlying structural similarities and to understand some fundamental differences as well. This goal is accomplished by (1) introducing students to two kinds of formal systems, first-order logic and formal phrase-structure grammars, (2) using these systems to analyze syntax and reasoning, in symbolic form and in English, and (3) examining differences between artificial and natural language in principles of cooperative communication.

2051/H2051 Analyzing the Sounds of Language

Prereq: Math 075 or equiv, or Math placement level R.

GE data analysis course. Cross-listed in Speech&Hearing.
In this course, we will introduce pertinent ideas and results from research in the various disciplines that have contributed to our understanding of the sounds of language. We will introduce some of the quantitative analytical tools that are used in the phonetic sciences, and do several experiments in class, to give a flavor of the diverse research methods that speech scientists have developed to try to determine how speech is produced and perceived by humans.

2367.01 H2367.01 Language, Sex, and Gender in American Culture

Prereq: English 1110.01 (110.01), 1110.02 (110.02), or 1110.03 (110.03), or equiv.

GE writing and comm: level 2; diversity social diversity in the US course.
This course examines how culturally enshrined ideas about gender affect language and the use of language and how linguistic conventions for the expression of gender differ¬ences reinforce these ideas. The course deals with structure and usage patterns in language as exhibited by men and women. This inquiry focuses on the following question: How do the members of each sex use language differently? How does language treat the sexes differently? How do such differences affect our perceptions, attitudes and behavior in everyday life? The learning of sex-typed languages by children and cross-cultural aspects of these questions are considered.

2367.02 Language and Advertising

Prereq: English 1110.01 (110.01), 1110.02 (110.02), or 1110.03 (110.03), or equiv.

GE writing and comm course: level 2.
The goals of this course are three-fold: first, to examine the ways in which language and linguistic knowledge are used by advertisers in the United States; second, to help the student develop effective presentation skills, both written and oral; and third, to develop the student's ability to critically evaluate and effectively use information. The entire course will revolve around American advertising and related topics, such as political campaign materials. The impact of advertising on American culture, the influence of the U.S. (and, in particular, English) on international advertising, and how various populations are represented in ads will also be addressed.

3401 Words and Meaning

Prereq: Ling 2000 (Linguist 201), 2000H (201H), or 4000 (601), and English 1110.01 (110.01), 1110.02 (110.02), or 1110.03 (110.03) or equiv.

An introduction to semantics focusing on word meanings, meaning in new word formation, meaning change over time, and cognitive processes involved in word learning and use. Words might seem to be the most obvious building blocks of language, but word meanings are complicated and fascinating to study. Why does word structure (prefixes, suffixes, compounds) often determine word meaning but sometimes mislead? How and why are new words always coming into our language? What are the historical sources of English vocabulary? How have word meanings changed through history? Do dictionaries determine what words mean, or does the way people use words determine what's in the dictionaries? What are the word meanings like that we carry around in our heads? (Are they like dictionary definitions? mental pictures? prototypical examples?) What can psychological experiments show us about the way words are learned, stored, retrieved, and analyzed in the mind?

It is concerned with the ways in which language serves as a basis for inter-ethnic conflict, discrimination and lack of social opportunity. The main focus of the course will be the varieties of English used by members of minority ethnic and racial groups in the United States, and the general relationship between their languages and their place in American society.

 

3602/H3602 Language and Social Identity in the US

GE social science individuals and groups; diversity social diversity in the US course.
This course examines the relationships between language and social diversity in the general American speech community. Its aim is to shed light on how individuals and social groups distinguish themselves on the basis of their choice of language, and their sharing (or not) of common norms of social evaluation and interpretation. In particular, it will investigate the relationship between language and such social parameters as social status, ethnicity, race, gender, etc. Finally, it will consider the role of language differences in the creation of social stereotypes, and their implications for social advantage or disadvantage.

3603 Language across Cultures

GE social science individuals and groups; diversity social diversity in the US course.
This course examines the relationships between language and culture in different societies with a view to shedding light on cross-cultural similarities and differences. Topics include: (1) how language differences among members of a society reflect social differences among them, (2) the role language plays in social behavior, (3) the ways in which language reflects social organization and individual social relationships, (4) the relationship between language and such aspects of culture as kinship relations, folk classifications of nature, and interpretation of the world, and (5) the relationship between language structure and perceptual and cognitive categories.

3604 Conducting Sociolinguistic Research: Language and Identity @ OSU

This course trains students in hands-on methods of sociolinguistic and dialectology research, including study design, data collection, ethics issues and data analysis. During the course, students will participate as fieldworkers in an ongoing research project examining the relationships between language and identity among OSU students.

3802/H3802 Language and Computers

Not open to students with Fresh standing

GE quantitative reasoning math and logical analysis course.
This is an introduction to human language technology. In this subject area we study whether and how it is possible for humans and computers to communicate in ordinary language. The widening use of computers has had a profound influence on the way ordinary people communicate, search and store information. For the overwhelming majority of people and situations, the main vehicle for such information is human language. Text and speech are crucial encoding formats for the information revolution. This course will give students insight into the fundamentals of how computers are used to represent, process and organize textual and spoken information, as well as provide tips on how to effectively integrate this knowledge into their work. The course will cover the theory and practice of human language technology. Topics include text encoding, search technology, tools for writing support, machine translation, dialog systems, computer aided language learning and the social context of language technology.

3901 Language Evolution and Language Change

GE cultures and ideas course.
In this course we survey different kinds of language evolution and change, their causes and the methods linguists use to analyze language change and to model the relationships between and among dialects and languages. Special emphasis is put on the role of linguistic variation and of external influences (e.g. social context, writing systems, contact with other speakers, contact with other cultures, self- and group-imposed ideologies and attitudes, etc.) in the historical development of languages and in bringing about linguistic differentiation and diversity. Counteracting forces of convergence through contact and of standardization are examined as well.
