Course Details

In this companion course to LIN103, we will address four broad areas with reference to Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, and their friends. After an overview of the challenging task of psychological measurement, we will address the nature of change (e.g., in age or location) as it pertains to language acquisition. Thereafter we will examine such language aspects as the critical period hypothesis, child language acquisition, and the nature of polyglots (speakers of several languages). The final unit will include practical cognitive facets such as memory enhancement and the benefits of 'possible selves'. This course in intended for students interested in the intersection of psychology and linguistics, but its relevance extends as well to the business world, management, and more. The course will include both lectures and discussion, for which an intermediate level of English will be sufficient.
