French and Italian | Introduction to French Phonology
F576 | 27774 | Dekydtspotter, Laurent
F576 introduces students to knowledge of French phonology and to
ideas about the mental organization such knowledge involves. We
focus on central issues in the phonology of French: Nasal vowels,
schwa, vowel alternations, final consonants, syllable structure
constraints and prosody. By the end of the term, students will have
experience collecting, organizing and analyzing phonological data.
This course assumes good knowledge of French, however, no knowledge
of phonology is required. Textbooks are Phonologie et morphologie
du franšais and The sounds of French.
