LNGS 301: Introduction to Phonology


The course introduces students to how speech sounds are organised across languages. It deals
with the identification of distinctive sounds, the combination of these sounds into unique
patterns and the changes that take place when sounds are combined. Data from a wide range of
languages will be used in problem solving sessions. Topics to be treated include: phonemes,
distinctive features, phonological processes, suprasegmental features and phonological rules.
