A MOOC for language lovers

Finally there’s a MOOC out there (free, online university course) for language lovers with no previous background in linguistic studies. “Miracles of Human Language: An Introduction to Linguistics” is a Leiden University course, transmitted on Coursera as of March 2015, and presented by my old linguistics teacher’s husband.

It promises to be a solid introduction to the basics of linguistics: phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and all that fun stuff, with possibly some celebrity appearances (did someone say Noam Chomsky?). So if all of this rocks your boat, or just ruffles your curiosity, head over to Coursera.org and sign up early for next year.
