Introduction to German Linguistics


Description

This course introduces you to the structure of Modern German from a linguistics point of view. Alongside literature and culture studies, linguistics is one of the major pillars in the study of a modern language, and it enables you to engage with the language you are learning on a different level. Approaching German from a linguistic point of view provide you with a view of how Modern German works as a system, how interdependencies influence the system and determine its path during change. This effects a deeper understanding of the language and its system and makes you more aware of the linguistic patterns you may encounter on a daily basis, both in German and in English. Additionally, you will gain an insight into how your own language learning processes works, what stages you may go through during your learning, and how you can approach and overcome difficulties.
