Roman Linguistics Studies

Le français et les langues de la Méditerranée: études de linguistique romane / French and Mediterranean Languages: Romance Linguistics Studies

The purpose of this course is to present a general overview of Romance linguistics. We will cover the main so-called neo-Latin languages (among them: Romanian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and French) from both a diachronic and a synchronic perspective. Our approach will highlight, on the one hand, the evolution of Romance languages in their socio-historical contexts and, on the other hand, a general reflection on the language, the different linguistic varieties, and the problems raised in a given society. No previous knowledge of Latin or the other, non-French Romance languages is required.
