This lecture course surveys the historical, social, cultural, and literary background against which the spoken Latin of the Iberian Peninsula evolved into Spanish. The emphasis is on the external rather than the internal history of Spanish. Topics covered include the influence on the development of Spanish of such diverse languages as Basque, Gothic, Arabic, French, Italian, and Literary Latin, the role of the Reconquest (Reconquista) in shaping the linguistic map of Spain, the circumstances leading to the rise of the Castilian dialect as the national standard, and an overview of the linguistic situation in modern Spain.

The textbook will be made available in a course pack. Students will write three exams during the academic term.
