Description

This course offers a theory-informed and theory-focused introduction to the study of sign language linguistics. We will explore how linguistic theory aids in the development of descriptively and explanatorily adequate analyses of sign languages, but also how the development of linguistic theory itself is dependent on the analysis of both signed and spoken languages. Course content will cover each component of the grammatical system (e.g., phonology, morphology, semantics) but may do so differentially dependent on student interest and background.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for students with advanced background in linguistics or sign languages (or both), but knowledge of a sign language is not required.
