It presents the phonology, morphology, syntax, and pragmatics of these languages. It is specifically targeted at those who will be working with non-native speakers of English in order to equip them to recognize the cross-linguistic influences of other languages on English, thus preparing them to communicate more effectively with their clients and/or students and to assess the linguistic and sociolinguistic factors which affect communication. This course is useful for majors in foreign language, anthropology, communications, health science, and English, and especially for those planning to enter elementary and secondary teaching in California, with its diversity of languages and cultures.
