ANTH 328 - Language Socialization

2020-2021 Catalog Year

Credit(s): 3
Lecture: 3
Non-Lecture: 0
This course investigates language acquisition from a sociocultural perspective. We explore processes related to the development of language skills across the lifespan and consider how patterns of language socialization within communities impact the vitality of languages differently, leading some to expand and others to contract, both in domain and speaker population. Students learn
to employ observational and discourse analytic techniques to recognize, document, and describe language development and language learning phenomena. As an advanced course, a major
objective of this course is for students to practice applying theoretical knowledge to interpret contemporary issues related to linguistic diversity in globalized society.

Prerequisite(s): ANTH 120   or permission of instructor.
