This course provides an introduction to Spanish Linguistics and establishes the basis for future application of linguistic principles. The course content will focus on the study of language, centering on the following fields of linguistic inquiry: word formation (morphology), word order (syntax and pragmatics), the sound system (phonetics and phonology), history of the language, and language acquisition. Students will apply their knowledge of course content in data analysis activities, homework assignments, quizzes, and exams.
