This course, to be taught in English, aims to provide a non-technical introduction to the linguistic structures of the Romance Languages. The course will focus on the standard varieties of the five so-called "national" Romance languages, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and Rumanian, although features from other varieties will be presented as appropriate. The course will begin with a discussion of the concept "language family" and the meaning of the designation "Romance languages". The rest of the semester will be spent focusing on the structural similarities and differences in the phonetics/phonology, morphology, syntax, and lexical structures of the Romance languages, and will conclude with an overview of how one language (Latin) evolved into the different Romance languages.

Students are required to have completed the equivalent of a fourth-semester course in one Romance language. No previous training in linguistics is required. There will be a midterm and a final exam, as well as a series of short assignments. Readings will be made available in a coursepack. This course can be used as a cognate for the Spanish and Italian majors and as one of the courses taught in English for the French major. Students in Linguistics should confirm with an advisor in Linguistics that this course can count as an elective in the Linguistics major.
