ENGL 5165. Introduction to Linguistics (3-0-3) Survey of various branches of linguistics, including the nature of language, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and discourse. This is part of a four-course sequence for those seeking an English-as-a-Second Language endorsement to a Georgia teaching certificate.
ENGL 5167. English Grammar (3-0-3) Prerequisite: ENGL 1102. A study of the major ways of analyzing English grammar and a detailed study of the structure of sounds, words, and sentences.
ITDS 5105. History and Practice of Translation (3-0-3) Prerequisite: ENGL 1102 with C or better. Translation involves more than moving the meanings of words from one language to another; it is, rather, an exchange of meaning across an entire social, cultural, linguistic and material world. Students will discuss problems of translation in books and/or films, and the roles of editing and transcription in translation. Fluency in a language other than English is not required, but some experience and study of a foreign language is recommended. Students will pursue a term-length project on a translation related topic of their own interest.
