LING 5320. PHONOLOGICAL THEORY. 3 Hours.
LING 5320 is a foundations course for the study of the principles that govern sound systems in human languages. Students will work with sound patterns from a variety of languages in order to understand the fundamental aspects of phonological phenomena, and course assignments will require application of the descriptive and theoretical tools in working with sound pattern data. Lectures will further develop this description, analysis, and argumentation for phonological data. May be repeated for credit as the topic changes. Prerequisite: Permission of Advisor.
