Qs: Online Courses for Introduction to Linguistics

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

Dear fellow linguists,

I was wondering if anyone knows of good online courses (in the U.S.)
that cover the material of a typical Introduction to Linguistics class. Intro
to Linguistics is a pre-requisite for students in our MA in TESL
program, and occasionally students ask if they can fulfill the
requirement via an online course. I would like to find a regularly offered
online course that I could suggest to them. The course would need to
cover standard Intro to Linguistics content, including introduction to
phonetics/phonology, morphology/syntax, and semantics/pragmatics,
and preferably also include something on language acquisition. I would
appreciate any information and links, and will post a summary based on
responses that I receive.

Thank you in advance!
