Performance Theory of Word Order and Constituency: Theory and
Application

The course will devote significant time to a close reading of
John Hawkin's (1994) book “A Performance Theory of Order and
Constituency”, and advances in language processing theory, particular
those within Hawkin's theoretical perspective.  This course would be
beneficial for those students interested in an alternative theory
regarding what drives word order in languages like Spanish, and what
role processing has in first, as well as second language
acquisition.  Although the focus will be primarily on Spanish, it
will not be exclusively so.  Working knowledge of one or more Romance
languages is desirable.
