MCLG 300 - Language in the Real World: Introduction to Applied Linguistics. 3 Credits.

Offered in the Autumn semester, every even numbered year. Many problems we encounter day-to-day have to do in one way or another with language. From addressing friends to writing academic texts, and from learning to write to using voice recognition technology to search the Internet, a lot of what we do in our private and professional lives has to do with language. Resolving language-related problems/issues in the real-world is a complex and dynamic task that requires not only knowledge about what language is and how it works, but also the use of interdisciplinary resources. Applied linguistics has developed into a problem driven and real-world based field that addresses language-based problems in real-world contexts. In this course you will explore language problems: (a) In human development and across the lifespan, (b) in education, (c) in society, and (d) in professional and institutional settings.
