SPN 384 - Spanish Dialectology

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course will examine the history and diversity of the Spanish-speaking world, from both historical and synchronic perspectives. The diachronic perspective will focus on the historical, cultural, social, and linguistic factors that were involved in the origin of different Spanish dialects. The synchronic perspective will provide a linguistic description (phonological, morpho-syntactic, and lexical) of various Spanish dialects as spoken today. Students will work with oral and written texts produced in different varieties of Spanish in order to recognize those varieties and identify the linguistic features that characterize each of them.

Prerequisite: SPN 343  or LIN 114 ; and SPN 311 SPN 312 SPN 314 SPN 315 , or SPN 317
