Linguistic Field(s): Phonology

Meeting Description:

Advanced Course (20 hours)

University of Porto (Portugal)

Instructor: Prof. Nick Faraclas (University of Puerto Rico)

This series of five intensive and interactive sessions is for students who wish to critically examine existing paradigms of descriptive, analytical and theoretical linguistics from the particular vantage point of the segmental and suprasegmental phonologies of creoles and other contact languages. The general framework within which the lectures, presentations, group discussions, and practical work sessions will unfold will be provided by readings on phonology in creole and other contact languages which contest many of the underlying assumptions of contemporary sociolinguistic theory and readings on creolistics that contest many of the underlying assumptions of contemporary phonological theory. Students who are working on particular projects related to the theme of the course are welcome to bring their data to class in order to get feedback on theoretical approach, methodology, and analysis from their colleagues participating in the sessions.

Venue: Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto (Portugal)

University of Porto staff and students: Free
Non-UP students: 30 EUR
Others: 60 EUR
