Sounds in Language (LING10030)
Credits 5 Subject Linguistics
Level 1 School Irish Cel St and Folklore
Semester   Information Semester One Module Coordinator Assoc Professor Máire Ní Chiosáin

This module introduces the area of Linguistics that deals with the description and classification of the sounds found in human languages - Articulatory Phonetics - and the related area that deals with the structure of sound systems in languages, i.e. the distribution, patterning and interaction of sounds in natural (human) language - Phonology. Data from a number of languages are analysed and cross-linguistic generalisations established. The acquisition of the sound system (child phonology) is also looked at.
