ENGL 2127 Language and Language Types (Fall: 3 )
Researches the diversity of natural languages and the limits of that diversity. How are human languages similar, and how are they different? What factors control the attested range of cross-linguistic variation? Focus is on morphological and syntactic data, with some discussion of the genetic (historical) relationships among the world's languages and methodological problems facing modern linguistic typologies.
