French and Italian | Intro to French Phonology
F576 | 27672 | Auger, Julie


This course deals with what it means to have knowledge of French
phonology and how such knowledge is mentally represented. We focus on
central issues in the phonology of French: nasal vowels, schwa, vowel
alternations, final consonants, syllable structure constraints, and
prosodic structure. There are two underlying themes: general
conceptual advances in the understanding of phonological
representations and the debate concerning the nature of phonological
processes.
