This course introduces students to a range of important topics in (generative) phonological theory and to phonological data analysis. On the theoretical side, we will cover the following topics:
Throughout the course, there is a strong emphasis on building data analysis and problem solving skills. Click here for last year’s course handbook.
Following this course, students will be able to progress to advanced study of phonological theory. In 2015⁄2016, we will not be offering LASC10089 Current Issues in Phonology, but it is planned that this will run in the second semester of 2016⁄2017. Get in touch early with prospective supervisors if you’re thinking about an Honours dissertation in phonology in 2016⁄2017, because it is likely you’ll need to do some summer reading. Conversely, LASC10046 Historical Phonology is running this year, but not next year. Plan accordingly.
