The Structure of Language
THE CO-EVOLUTION OF LANGUAGE AND HUMAN CULTURE
The five critical features of language:
Syntax and Grammar- the system of rules for words forms that make meaningful sentences.
Phonology- the system of rules of how words should sound, or are pronounced.
Semantics- the meaning of the words
Pragmatics- the system of rules for words that tells us how language is used and the meaning in different social context.
