What does it mean when we say that Spanish, French, Portuguese, Catalan, Italian and Rumanian are Romance languages? This course will examine the concept of language family and deal specifically with the family known as the Romance languages, i.e., the languages descended from Latin. Taking Spanish as the starting point, we will examine the linguistic structures (sounds, forms, grammar, vocabulary) that the Romance languages have in common, and those features that distinguish Spanish from its sister languages. Although not prerequisites, an introductory course in linguistics and some knowledge of a second Romance language would be helpful background for students taking this course. The material will be somewhat technical and this course should be taken only by students who are (or who think they may be) genuinely interested in the subject matter. Students will be evaluated on the basis of a series of exams and written assignments.
