Language and Communication

Università Telematica Internazionale UNINETTUNO

The course aims to describe human language, defining its role within the communication. Origin and development of language, will be taken into consideration from a phylogenetic as well as from a ontogenetic point of view. The organization of the various aspects of language (phonology, lexicon, syntax, pragmatics) will be examined through a perspective in between psycholinguistics, which studies phenomena and processes, and neuro-linguistic, which studies mechanisms and neural substrates underlying human language, a fundamental social tool. Furthermore verbal and nonverbal communication will be considered in both, typical and pathological aspects.
