LING 451. Phonology I. 3 Credits.
Linguistics courses are taught through a cooperative program between UND and SIL International during a nine-week summer session every year. Introductory courses are at the undergraduate level; advanced courses are at the graduate level but are open to undergraduates who meet their prerequisites. Courses focus on theoretically-informed descriptive linguistics in preparation for careers involving minority-language communities and lesser-studied languages. They are particularly appropriate for students anticipating careers in language development, documenting endangered languages, language survey, translation, and literacy.
