HISP-S 326 Introduction to Hispanic Linguistics (3 credits)
Prerequisite: S310 or equivalent
This course provides an introduction to Hispanic Linguistics and
establishes a foundation in the major areas of linguistics which
will prepare students to succeed in future courses in Hispanic
Linguistics. After a general introduction on the nature of language,
the course presents a description of the sound system of Spanish
followed by a study of the principles of phonetic transcription.
Next, basic concepts in morphology, the structure of words, will be
examined, including a description of the general principles of the
formation of nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and verbs. Then, in order
to examine the combination of words in a sentence, this course will
review the basic concepts of sentence structure (syntax) and its
connection to meaning (semantics). This course ends with an overview
of basic concepts in second language acquisition, variation in
language use (sociolinguistics), and language use in context
