Intermediate Linguistics

This course is intended for students who have taken the introductory linguistics class at NILI or have a similar background in linguistics. In it, students will:

  • Learn to make sense of scholarly materials (grammars, dictionaries, narrative texts, stuff from archives) prepared by linguists and others
  • Learn how to interpret these primary resources in order to create materials for teaching and learning
  • Learn more about how their language conveys information through words and sentences
  • Learn to analyze the words of their language and understand how grammar can help anyone trying to write curriculum or materials for a language class

Students should bring any resources they are, or would like to be, using to the first day of class.

Instructor, Tim Thornes
