Angaben zur Abhaltung
We all know (a) language; yet it is a mystery to most of us. Unless we come up against problems in communication we do not normally reflect on it; it’s our second nature – part of the body. The lecture sheds light onto the English language and sensitises us to what we subconsciously know. It seeks to familiarise students with the basic ideas and terms used in the description of linguistic structure with regard to English.
We will be looking at the following areas of linguistics:

1) Speech Sounds and their patterning (Phonetics/Phonology)
2) Words and their structure (Morphology),
3) Combinations of words in phrases and sentences (Syntax)
4) Word meanings and their networking in the lexicon (Semantics)
English at least on B2 level

Successful completion of this lecture is a prerequisite for "E B 9.2 PS Applied Linguistics" in the 6th semester.
Building/raising awareness of the structures of English. Familiarity with basic descriptive terminology of linguistics. Knowledge of the main linguistic features of English.
