|I created Essentials of Linguistics (https://ecampusontario.pressbooks.pub/essentialsoflinguistics/) for my students in Introduction to Linguistics. |
This Open Educational Resource (OER) brings together Open Access content from around the web and enhances it with dynamic video lectures about the core areas of theoretical linguistics (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics), supplemented with discussion of psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic findings. Essentials of Linguistics is suitable for any beginning learner of linguistics but is primarily aimed at the Canadian learner, focusing on Canadian English for learning phonetic transcription, and discussing the status of Indigenous languages in Canada. Drawing on best practices for instructional design, Essentials of Linguistics is suitable for blended classes, traditional lecture classes, and for self-directed learning. No prior knowledge of linguistics is required.
I had support from eCampusOntario and from instructional designers and media specialists at McMaster University. This eBook OER is available for anyone to use, redistribute, revise, remix, and retain. The eBook includes chapters on all the core areas of theoretical linguistics, many delivered in video format, with accompanying quiz questions and exercises. I welcome collaboration from Linguistics scholars who would like to contribute sections or update content or exercises.
