Description
ACCELERATED MORPHOLOGY
Students in this course will: understand and define relevant concepts used to discuss morphology; explore the theoretical description of morphology; develop the ability to organize linguistic data as a first step in analysis / to apply key concepts to linguistic problems and original data; analyze complex words in languages other than English and determine the meanings of the parts; describe simply and appropriately how the derivational and/or inflectional morphemes behave in a particular language problem; compare competing analyses and provide justification for selecting one analysis over another; and, apply knowledge of morphology in reading empirical research with a critical eye, including articles that focus on a range of languages (i.e., Dutch, English, French, Frisian, German, Hungarian, Russian, Spanish, Swahili) and morphological phenomena (e.g., compounding, diminutivization, grammatical gender, number, mood, prefixation, etc.)
