SCS 301 - Clinical Linguistics

Description
This course is designed to provide undergraduate students of speech language pathology and audiology with an introduction to the field of linguistics and its various subfields (semantics, syntax, morphology, phonology, sociolinguistics, bio-linguistics, neurolinguistics) along with their applications to the field of clinical linguistics, i.e., the sub-field of linguistics that studies the application of linguistic theory to the field of Speech and Language Pathology. The course is tailored specifically to meet the needs of speech and language pathology majors and it satisfies guidelines relative to the interface between the disciplines of linguistics and speech language pathology. The course provides theoretical background to understand how the brain processes language in standard and non-standard contexts and determines the expected outcomes when a component of grammar is impaired. Enrollment Requirements: Prerequisite: SCS 101.
