This unit is an introduction to the scientific study of language through a focus on Australia’s Indigenous languages. You will gain an introductory understanding of the practical and theoretical aspects of linguistics and how languages work, including sound production and sound systems, parts of speech, grammatical relations in words and sentences, and meaning.
This forms part of the INL100 unit Linguistics for Indigenous Languages 1 accredited through CDU/Batchelor Institute.
