LING 4060 - Modern Language Theory

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): ENG 2010 and senior standing, or permission of instructor

Description: This course focuses on at least two different theoretical approaches to language.  The main theoretical approach is language universals and the typological classification of languages, which allows students to examine linguistic structures on all levels (phonological, morphological, and syntactic) from languages all around the world.  Other theoretical approaches are also studied, at least one in depth.  The course is designed to help the students utilize the terminology and methodological analyses they have learned in previous courses and apply these to new linguistic situations.

University Requirement(s): Senior Experience
