RLRL 5572 Comparative Development of the Romance Languages (Fall: 3 )
How many Romance languages are there? You may be surprised! What constitutes a Romance language? And why are they called "Romance" languages? In addition to answering these and many other questions, we will examine in considerable detail the linguistic development and structure of Spanish, French and Italian, and acquire more limited familiarity with other Romance languages. The focus of the course will be on their historical development from Latin. This course may be taken for either graduate or undergraduate credit.
