SPAN 209 - Intro to Hispanic Linguistics


Credits: 3

Prerequisite: SPAN 162, 164, or equivalent. This course provides a broad view of major subfields of linguistic study with a particular focus on data drawn from the Spanish language. Class discussions begin with broader questions, such as "What is language?" and "How do language and human behavior intersect?"; throughout the term students revisit those questions in light of topics presented in class. By the end of the course, students demonstrate an understanding of the many facets of the Spanish language and also the linguistic principles as can be applied to any language. The course covers major concepts in Spanish phonology and phonetics, Spanish morphology and syntax, and lastly, Spanish dialectology. Reyes.
