LIN 395 - Seminar in Linguistics

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
This course investigates the nature of language change and the principles developed by linguistics to account for these changes.  We will examine the various domains in which change occurs (phonological, morphological, syntactic, and lexical/semantic), and the social and linguistic motivations for change.  The course will address the methods used to determine the earlier profile of a language or its parent language; students will use these methods in their own research projects.

Prerequisite: A 200-Level Linguistics course
Note: Not offered every year.
Instructor: Hansen
