ESL 8020 - Advanced Linguistic Analysis


Using naturally occurring linguistic data from the first languages that ESL practitioners encounter in Minnesota (e.g. Spanish, Hmong and Somali), this course will provide ESL practitioners with a solid understanding of topics in syntax, semantics and pragmatics. The emphasis will be on recognizing pattern and structure (including linguistic universals) and relating this knowledge to the language learning needs of ESL students.
