Scientific Study of Human Language
This course will be delivered using a lecture style.
This course explains how generative grammar has developed from its birth to the current model, the Minimalist Program, through a theoretically significant turning point in the early 1980s. Generative grammar was born in the mid 20th century, when American Structural Linguistics enjoyed its prosperity. A young American linguist, Noam Chomsky, proposed a revolutionary, new linguistic theory in the mid 1950s. The new theory based on rationalism showed how to study human language scientifically. The course reviews the challenges of the linguistic science that has been trying to reveal our linguistic competence as a biological endowment over a half-century.
1. Understanding differences between empiricist linguistics and rationalist linguistics.
2. Understanding important basic concepts of generative grammar.
3. Understanding the theoretical development of generative grammar.
