課程描述

這門課是給剛接觸語言學和心理學的學生一個入門。在孩童成長期間人類語言的發展以及語言產生過程中心智的相互作用在課程中被審慎探討。這門課也討論到語言如何隨著年齡的老化而改變,及在重大外傷或手術後,語言如何再習得。另外,我們將探討跨文化的語言產生,及利用現代化的掃描技術來研究人類的腦。

這門課將談論一些有關於人類語言的幾個根本問題:

  1. 語言在我們的心智中如何被呈現
  2. 孩童如何習得語言
  3. 成人如何處理語言
  4. 語言和思維的關係
  5. 使用腦影像技術來探討語言在腦中如何被呈現和處理
  6. 以電腦模型輔助了解人類語言如何習得與處理

講稿的進度表

在一月的兩週內上完八堂課,每堂1.5小時

課程前提與要求

這門課開給大學部學生修習,不要求有心理學或語言學的基礎。

  2. 期末考

研習資料

這份研習資料將幫助學生聚焦於語言和心智領域中適當的主題。建議學生們回答每一個研習問題來幫助自己準備期末考。






Course Description

This course is designed as a primer for students new to the field of linguistics and psychology. The development of human language as a child grows and the interplay with the mind during language production is contemplated. The course also considers how language changes during the aging process, and the reacquisition of language after a major trauma or operation. Additionally, we will explore cross-cultural language production and how it can be studied with modern scanning techniques in the human brain.

The course will address some fundamental questions regarding human language:

  1. How language is represented in our minds
  2. How language is acquired by children
  3. How language is processed by adults
  4. The relationship between language and thought
  5. Exploring how language is represented and processed using brain imaging methods
  6. Computational modeling of human language acquisition and processing

Lecture Schedule

Eight 1.5-hour sessions over two weeks in January

Course Prerequisites and Requirements

This course is intended for undergraduates. No background in psychology or linguistics is required.

Requirements

  1. Attendance
  2. Final exam

Study Materials

The study materials will help focus students on the pertinent topics in the field of language and mind. It is suggested that students answer each study question to help themselves prepare for the final exam.
