Mini-class: Communication versus Language

What is Language? we may ask. Is language a communication system? Can communication happen without language? It seems so as animals communicate and they do not have language. So, what is the purpose of language? In this mini-class, we will go over some of the arguments that highlight the difference between language and communication and question the existence of one without the other.

The full description of the mini-class can be found through SAIL

Sponsored by the Linguistics Program at Northeastern. For further information, contact us at linguistics@northeastern.edu.
