Topics: Language & Linguistics

Topics in Arabic Language and Linguistics *

This course will provide an overview of modern linguistics with a special focus on the Arabic language, and on Arabic language pedagogy. It will include a review of each “level” of current linguistic analysis (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics) from the perspective of the Arabic language, in order to provide students with a working knowledge of basic terms and issues. Reference will be made to the Arabic grammatical tradition only in passing, especially with regard to terminologies. In addition to reading a variety of texts in English and in Arabic, students will be asked to perform linguistic analyses of examples taken from Arabic, and to research possible ways of applying these terms and analyses to the teaching of Arabic
