Overview

Linguistics at Bard College at Simon's Rock investigates the range of patterning found in systems of sound, structure, and meaning in languages. 

Learning outcomes

The goal of linguistic study is both specific and general: Linguists attempt to describe the structure of specific languages in order to generate theories about universal characteristics of human language and to gain insight into the functioning of the human mind. Although linguistics is not the study of any particular language or language family, knowledge of or familiarity with particular languages informs the understanding of the possibilities of linguistic form and meaning.
