In 11 episodes, Taylor Behnke teaches you linguistics! The content is based on an introductory university-level curriculum, curated by a team of linguists: Lauren Gawne, Jessi Grieser, and Gretchen McCulloch. By the end of this course, you will be able to:

* Understand how linguists approach analyzing language, including our ethical responsibility to use our increased understanding of how language works to be more compassionate with language
* Identify and analyze the structural features of language, across different levels, including phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics
* Apply this structural approach to describe language as it is used, including its social functions, how people learn language, and how language is used in technology
* Recognize that there are thousands of spoken languages and hundreds of signed languages in the world
* Identify the International Phonetic Alphabet and understand the system behind how the IPA chart is organized


So interesting!
