HISP-S 429  Hispanic Sociolinguistics  (3 credits)
Prerequisite:  S326 or equivalent.

This undergraduate course provides an introduction to the basic
concepts in sociolinguistics. Notions such as speech community,
sociolinguistic variable, phonological and syntactic variation, and
field methods will be included. The course also surveys other
related topics such as discourse analysis, language and power,
language ideology, language attitudes, languages in contact,
language and gender, and language and the law. We will focus on
research examining the use of Spanish in Latin America and Spain as
well as in the US. Class time will be divided in lectures,
discussion, case analysis, and problem solving. The evaluation will
be based on participation, homework activities, experimental
activities, and exams.
