Course Description
This course is a compulsory course for ENGE and ELED students while other students have to seek for add consent from the department in order to be enrolled in the course. It provides an introduction of different aspects of linguistics, including features of language, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, language acquisition and sociolinguistics. Examples are mainly confined to the English language but examples from other languages (e.g. Cantonese, Putonghua, Japanese, French) are sometimes used for illustration.
