In undeniable ways, we are, what we speak! Language lies at the heart of who we are and what we might be and informs our conceptions of reality. In this course we begin to explore not only how human beings manipulate language, but also how they are manipulated by it. Throughout the semester we will employ not only serious readings on scholarly questions, but also fiction, poetry, and film to define language, explore language as a human attribute, and investigate the role of language in defining us as social beings.  Note: Class will be taught in two different classroom locations. Satisfies General Education FW requirement.
