This subject will provide foundation knowledge about the form and use of language, upon which students will build in preparation for future applications in a range of disciplines. The subject material includes analysis of the grammar and forms of language, and analysis of speech sounds. Both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, including the use of the International Phonetic Alphabet to transcribe speech, will be developed. A module on sociolinguistics will have a particular focus on language varieties and sociolinguistic issues pertinent to Indigenous Australians.
