Institution: MIT Lecturer: Prof. Norvin A. Richards University Course Code: MIT 24.900 Subject: #linguistics Description: This class provides some answers to basic questions about the nature of human language. Throughout the course, we examine a number of ways in which human language is a complex but law-governed mental system. Much of the class is devoted to studying some core aspects of this system in detail; we also spend individual classes discussing a number of other issues, including how language is acquired, how languages change over time, language endangerment, and others.

    Thank you, I was looking for this. I was struggling to read or use phonetic symbols.

      If your issue is memorising a handful of IPA letters, this channel might be helpful - because it’s easier to memorise them if you’re hearing the associated sound, and seeing how it’s articulated. [Sorry for the uncalled advice.]

    Those are great - thank you for sharing. I’m considering to even link the playlist in the comm’s sidebar, as it’s useful as a resource for newcomers.
