LIN 295-01 - Special Topic: Language Contact

4 credits (Fall)
Cross-listed as: ANT 295-01 . The course examines the linguistic varieties and practices that emerge when linguisticailly diverse groups come in contact with one another. We begin by discussing 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
