This course involves an approach to language study dealing with the psychology, the process of abstraction, and the levels of the meaning of language. The objectives of the course include demonstrating an understanding of: (1) the origin and nature of language, (2) the process by which language changes and develops, (3) the abstract nature of the thought and language process, (4) symbology and the levels of meaning of language, (5) the psychology of language and how it affects behavior, and (6) the psychology of language and how it affects culture. It is believed that the course is important because language is a unique tool enabling man to create culture. Since language is a system of symbols and human behavior is a response to symbols, the study of the nature of language is intertwined with the study of human behavior and with the effect of language on the civilization of man. Numerous teaching strategies and a bibliography of student and teacher resources, including textbooks, supplementary material, films, records, filmstrips, and slide-record sets, included. (Author/DI)
