Abstract
This is an occasion on which "we can discuss the necessity, content and method of
teaching linguistics in Korea. Teaching linguistics is necessary to make understand the nature of language as the most important means of communication not only in every day life but also in all areas of sciences. Natural language serves even as the basis of all sorts of formal languages.
The content of linguistics to teach must include the nature of linguistic signs as arbitrary relations between sounds and meanings, subfields such as phonology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, together with diachronic and typological principles. Interdisciplinary areas such as language and culture, language and psychology,' language and logic' are also recommended to be taught.
For an effective teaching, there must be gradation in difficulty levels. It is not wise to introduce specialized original writings such as Chomsky and Montague at the undergraduate level. Well developed textbooks with exercises are recommended. There must be close inter-aétÏ'on between data and theory. A theory without data is impossible and accumulated data without any theory do not count. This point must be reflected in all aspects of education: classroom instruction, assignments, tests and all sorts of papers. In departments of language and literature, more linguistically-oriented courses must be offered, and more linguistics departments must be opened to raise linguists. Seoul National University alone has the department of linguistics in Korea at present.
