The linguistics course aims to clarify the subject matter and the object of linguistics. Through the discovery of these fundamental problems students will separate it from other, non-­‐ scholarly approaches to language, get an overview of the basic branches of linguistics, learn about the main theoretical frameworks, the current trends in linguistic theory and the relationship between language and society.
