LINGUIST 301

Advanced Phonology


Description

Course overview

A continuation of LINGUIST 201, introducing a more theoretical approach to phonology including distinctive feature theory, syllable theory, metrical phonology, autosegmental phonology, lexical phonology. Issues are explored in the context of a constraint-based approach to phonology. Includes a practical component in which theories are applied to language data. 

Course outcomes

This is a course in advanced phonology. By the end of the course students should be able to perform both a phonological and a morphological analysis (including working with data, isolating patterns, constructing descriptive generalisations and providing arguments for a particular viewpoint). A goal of the course is for the student to become familiar with the contemporary theories employed in phonology, specifically, constraint-based approaches.
