LING 190  The World of Language I (AH)                            3 credits
Language as a distinctive characteristic of the human species. In this course, we examine the structure of both written and spoken forms of language across cultures, comparing them with animal communication and human gestural systems. We explore language’s neurological basis, theories of origin, and first- and second-language learning. Note: MLL 190 is required for the MLL major. Also listed as ENGL and MLL 190. Highly recommended: MLL 191. For more information contact westphal@umbc.edu.
