The structure of language is not only about its grammar or words. It also needs to deal with the system of the sounds of each word since sounds might affect its meaning and implications once pronounced by communicators.

Good communication skills should practically implement good speaking skills which phonology enters in. In this [course_title] you will understand the impact of language structure focusing on phonology that can actually affect linguistics and its meaning.
