The Languages of the World

This course provides an overview of the variation among the languages of the world. A number of linguistic features are described and explained, taking their expression in a variety of the world’s languages as the starting point, and what differences and commonalities there are among them. Topics also discussed include how languages can be classified in terms of various factors, language relatedness, language contact, pidgin and creole languages and what is typical of languages from different areas of the world.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
