Mechanics of Language

Every element of language is a Lego block. In Mechanics of Language, students will investigate these building blocks, and learn how to use them to create the foundations of language. Students will use this knowledge to investigate human language and communication in different contexts and examine the history and interrelation between languages of the world. Mechanics of Language is recommended for Maths, Science, LOTE and English students, or students who want to learn about the way languages work.
