This course will allow students to examine linguistic structures in detail from a typological and/or areal viewpoint. The typological perspective will inform students about the prevalence of those structures in the languages of the world, whereas the areal perspective will address how those structures are diffused across languages that are in close contact with each other.
Note: Students may take this course more than once for credit, provided the topic covered in each offering differs substantially. Students must consult the Department to ensure that the topics covered are different.
