OverviewCredits: 15.0Overlap: NonePrerequisite: LIN400When you say a sentence, that sentence somehow evokes a new thought in the mind of the person you are talking to. This is because words of human languages have meanings, and the ways that those words combine also has an effect on meaning. This module looks at all the different aspects of meaning that contribute to the process of understanding, and explores a number of different ways that linguists have tried to theorize about meaning. This module is a pre-requisite for LIN301 Formal Semantics and for LIN601 Philosophy of Language.Assessment: 100.0% CourseworkLevel: 5
