Language is an integral part of life. In linguistics, we study language scientifically in order to understand the physical, cognitive, neurological and psychological properties of human language. In this camp, students will learn about the various structures and properties of language, including sounds, words, sentences, the computational applications of these properties, and more! Students will develop analytical skills, learn about the scientific method and hypothesis testing, brain imaging, improve SAT vocabulary skills by studying the history and structure of key English vocabulary, and also discover the rich linguistic and cultural history of Arizona.
