Courses

      • LING 5320-001 Phonological Theory

        Ling 5320 is a foundations course for the study of the principles that govern sound systems in human languages. Students will work with sound patterns from a variety of languages in order to understand the fundamental aspects of phonological phenomena, and course assignments will require application of the descriptive and theoretical tools in working with sound pattern data. Lectures will further develop this description, analysis, and argumentation for phonological data.

      • LING 4301-001 PHONOLOGICAL THEORY I

        LING 4301 covers the study of the principles that govern sound systems in human languages.  Students will work with sound patterns from a wide variety of the world’s languages.  Course readings will introduce the fundamentals of the different areas of phonological phenomena, and course assignments will require hands-on application of the descriptive and theoretical tools in working with sound pattern data.  Lectures will further develop this approach of description, analysis, and argumentation for phonological data.  As the semester progresses, students will be expected to engage higher-level questions about what phonological models are expected to explain and to talk about data in an increasingly sophisticated and prose-based manner. Developing clear prose and argumentation to present descriptions, generalizations, and analyses are all necessities in this course.
