Language science is the scientific study of how humans acquire, use, comprehend, and produce language. Most people in all societies learn and use their native language or languages with apparent ease - but don't be fooled: languages are highly complex, and speaking and understanding language requires some amazing feats of mental acrobatics. Thus there are many opportunities for difficulties with language, which is the focus of our field.

Human hearing is exquisitely sensitive, allowing us to hear extremely faint sounds, to follow the sounds of a friend's voice in a loud party, and to appreciate subtle differences between words in the language. This course provides an introduction to the basic physics of sound, the acoustic properties of the sounds of speech, and the mechanisms by which those sounds are perceived by the listener.
