The students have taken an introductory course in General Linguistics.
2. Objectives (expected learning outcomes)
The students are aware that the study of language is not restricted to a study of its internal structure and that there are different interfaces between linguistics and other disciplines. They can discuss the most representative research issues in these interdisciplinary approaches, more particularly, in the context of the dominant theoretical models.
3. Course content
Each chapter approaches language from the perspective of a specific discipline. Each time a review is presented of the most pertinent research issues and methodologies in that particular area of research. The first focus is on the study of language use, more particulary, the study of social aspects (sociolinguistics) and cognitive aspects of language use (psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics). The second focus is on the computational study of language (computer linguistics). The diversity of approaches emphasizes the multifaceted nature of language, which makes an interdisciplinary approach possible in the first place.
