Primary Instructor:

Phonology studies the sound system of human languages. The course assumes that students have taken at least one full-semester course in phonetics or phonology. We will focus on three central topics: (a) features and sounds, (b) syllable structure, and (c) stress and prosody. The readings consist of journal articles that represent various theoretical perspectives. At the same time, equal emphasis will be given to problem-solving ability. Students will be given daily exercises, some of which involve analyzing data according to different theories. In addition, students are expected to work on three mini-projects, each dealing with one of the four central topics.
This course will enable students to become familiar with current theories and research topics in phonology. In addition, students will learn how to describe and analyze linguistic data, including quantitative data and large corpora, such as sound inventories in the world’s languages, full lexicons of selected languages, syllable types and frequencies, and rhythmic patterns of poems.
Prerequisite: One semester of phonetics or phonology, or permission of the instructor.
