ANT 250 - Language Contact

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Cross-listed as: LIN 250 . The course examines the linguistic varieties and practices that emerge when linguistically diverse groups come in contact with one another. We will discuss the types of situations that give rise to language contact and then turn to look at the linguistic effects that result from such contact at both the micro (e.g. borrowing, code-switching) and the macro (e.g. language shift, language death) level.

Prerequisite: ANT 104  or LIN 114 .
Instructor: Hansen
