Module code: LIN5207
- Semester 1: Wednesday 11 am - 1 pm
Contact: Dr Coppe Van Urk
Prerequisite: LIN403 and LIN4200
This is a module about language universals and linguistic typology. In it you will extend the descriptive knowledge you gained in LIN403 (Languages of the World) and learn how the descriptive categories connect to theoretical models of language variation. We will cover a subset of word order, grammatical functions, case marking, relative clauses, causative constructions, lexicalization parameters, the organization of the noun phrase, prepositional syntax, morphophonological variation. The assessment is mainly by a research project where you will work with native speakers of languages to investigate some typological property of interest.
