LIN 228 - Linguistic Typology

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
How are languages the same and how are they different? Which characteristics are universal to all languages and which ones are rare? In this course, students will learn to evaluate what is unusual and what is expected in a language. We will determine the range of possible sound inventories, word order patterns, grammatical categories, and lexical categories found within the world’s languages.

Prerequisite: LIN 114 .
Note: Plus-2 option available. Not offered every year.
Instructor: Hansen
