Sound, Grammar and Meaning

This is an introductory Japanese linguistics module which teaches how the language is analysed in terms of its sound, grammar and meaning. In order to develop a deeper understanding of the language, students will be asked to do frequent exercises that will help develop analytical skills. Topics such as pronunciation, accent patterns, word-formation, sentence analysis, complex sentences, functions of language, comparison with other Asian languages, and literal and pragmatic meanings will also be taught.
