Students in this subject will develop more advanced concepts and knowledge about the form and use of language and speech, as a basis for studies in speech pathology practice. The subject includes further study of the lexicon and syntax of English, and of the sound system of languages, topics which were introduced in SL1002 Linguistics and Phonetics 1. Three further topics areas are introduced: acoustic phonetics, psycholinguistics and the study of meaning (or the uses of language). The first of these looks at the physics (acoustics) of sound and the ways that speech can be analysed acoustically, while the second looks at theories and models of how language might be represented and processed in the brain and the third will involve an introduction to the study of both semantics and pragmatics. In addition, students will examine how competence in these various aspects of language is developed during the early years of a child's life. Students will also have the opportunity to observe applications of linguistics and phonetics in community and speech pathology practice environments.
