Primary Instructor:

This course introduces the scientific study of language (linguistics) and applies its principles to Spanish. The course begins with an overview of basic linguistic properties, then examines structural systems of Spanish: the sounds (phonetics) and sound system (phonology), the units used in the composition of words (morphology) and word order in sentences (syntax), including key terms associated with distinguishing meaning (semantics) in the context of sentences. We will also focus on the history of Spanish, language acquisition, as well as connections between language and society by examining how speakers manage interactions in different social contexts (pragmatics/discourse analysis), and how language use varies according to social factors (sociolinguistics). Students will apply their knowledge of these concepts through homework assignments, research summaries, quizzes and exams, and basic linguistic analyses of authentic language data. In this course, students will develop the analytical skills to succeed in future Hispanic Linguistics courses.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
