New Course Supplement 2016


LING 11.12 Language and Cognition

This course examines some of the interrelationships between language and thought. Do people who speak different languages think differently? What does language tell us about the ways in which people conceptualize objects and abstract concepts such as time? How does language relate to other cognitive processes? Is language a uniquely human ability? Topics include linguistic relativism, folk taxonomies, metaphor, categorization, causation, space, time and gender. No prior courses in linguistics or cognitive science are required.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:SOC

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
