2019-2020

Description

This course builds on Descriptive Linguistics 1 in the first semester. In Descriptive Linguistics 2 we focus on the analysis of raw language data in all areas of linguistics: phonology, morphology, and syntax. The emphasis is on choosing the best analysis. We use little analyzed and unpolished data collections on which the students themselves work, also in groups.

Course objectives

Skills in making a description and first analysis of phonological, morphological and syntactic phenomena of unknown languages. Basic skills in specific computer applications such as ELAN.
