The comedies of Plautus and Terence and the tragedies of Seneca are among the most important, fascinating, and influential works of Latin literature. Comedy, with its crafty slaves and angry old men, is the earliest Latin literature to survive complete and offers an unparalleled perspective on the social history of Republican Rome, as well as setting the template for comedy on through the Renaissance down to the sit-com. Seneca's gruesome but vibrant tragedies reveal the dark heart of Imperial Rome and cast their shadow forward onto Shakespeare, Racine, and Ted Hughes. This unit will explore one or more of these mesmerizing plays as literature, as theatre, and as windows on Roman society.

This unit explores the fundamental properties of human language, with examples from languages spoken in every part of the world. We look at the sounds of human language: how the speech organs make them, and how different they can be across languages. We gain a detailed understanding of English consonants and vowels, and we learn how to transcribe them phonetically. We investigate the ways in which sounds can convey meanings, through the formation of words and sentences in English and many other languages. We see how and why English is different from Japanese, Swahili, German, or even Irish.
LNGS1002 Language and Social Context

This unit introduces the study of the interrelationship between language and society. It is concerned with phenomena of language change and how that leads to varieties in a language. How are these varieties linked to social differences? What distinguishes male speech from female speech or what are the linguistic styles of different social classes or ethnic groups? What is slang, or jargon, and what distinguishes a casual conversation from an interview?
LNGS2601 Phonetics and Phonology

Phonetics is the study of the physical properties of human speech. Phonology is the study of the representation and organization of sound in human language. This unit introduces students to these two core fields within linguistics, while also offering a brief overview of the phonetic and phonological diversity found in the world's languages. Basic phonological patterns are explored and students are given hands on practice in analysing these patterns.

The unit of study examines the Indigenous languages of Australia. How many languages are there? What do they sound like and how are words and meanings structured? We explore how language reflects the society that uses them and the physical environment. We will also see that new Aboriginal languages have emerged, apparently moribund languages have been gaining strength and distinctive Aboriginal ways of talking have survived and influenced English. Students will be exposed to language through Indigenous guest lecturers and will undertake exercises that highlight issues of cross-cultural communication and aspects of language use in different social situations.

Intercultural communication is common, especially in todays globalized societies. It is challenging for people who engage in it, as well as for theories of communication in different societies. We consider approaches including conversation analysis, speech act theory, interactional sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, and discourse analysis. In analysing samples of cross-cultural communication we attend to how social relationships are reflected in linguistic practices. We explore applied perspectives on intercultural communication in educational, courtroom and workplace interactions.

This unit examines sound systems in language, from a holistic point of view, looking at phonetic and phonological properties of sounds. Techniques are introduced to help analyse linguistic sound systems in terms of synchronic patterns and also their diachronic development.
