SPAN 511 - Spanish Phonology I
An introduction to generative phonology. We will examine aspects of the sound structure of a number of diverse languages, in order to introduce the student to data analysis and the formal tools of phonological theory. Questions to be addressed include: How do we extract sound patterns from a set of data? What kinds of patterns can we expect to find? How can we best describe these patterns in a formal notation? What kinds of formalisms have been proposed? How can we evaluate the proposals? This course is recommended for any student who plans to use phonological data in her or his further research. This course has no prerequisites, but it will itself be a prerequisite for all more advanced phonology courses.
