Graduate Courses

16:615:505Linguistics Colloquium (3) Discussion and presentation of research in progress by advanced graduate students, visitors, and faculty members.
16:615:510Syntax I (3) Introduction to syntactic theorizing and analysis. Provides fundamental background in phrase structure theory, predicate argument structure, grammatical function changing, conditions on anaphora, case marking, thematic roles, and long-distance dependencies.
16:615:511Syntax II (3) Intermediate-level discussion of major issues in syntactic theory, including theories of parametric variation, logical form and levels of grammar, and components and subtheories of grammar. Prerequisite: 16:615:510.
16:615:515Seminar in Syntactic Theory (3) Advanced-level discussion of current issues in syntactic theory. Topics vary. Prerequisite: 16:615:511 or permission of instructor.
16:615:517Topics in Germanic Syntax (3) Further study of Germanic phenomena in the construction of syntactic theory. Emphasis on construction types that are of the greatest theoretical and crosslinguistic interest. Prerequisite: Working knowledge of generative grammar.
16:615:520Phonology I (3) Introduction to major phonological phenomena and concepts of current theory, with emphasis on the development of analytical skills.
16:615:521 Phonology II (3) In-depth investigation of leading issues in current theory, with focus on the structure of representations and the organization of the phonological component of the grammar. Prerequisite: 16:615:520.
16:615:525Seminar in Phonology (3) Exploration of a special topic arising from current research in phonological theory. Prerequisite: 16:615:521 or permission of instructor.
16:615:530Semantics I (3) Introduction to model-theoretic semantics. Topics include elementary set theory, predicate logic, and their applications in the analysis of major semantic phenomena.
16:615:531Semantics II (3) Mathematical tools for relating syntactic structure to semantic interpretation. Topics include higher-order logic, lambda calculus, intensional logic, type theory, type-driven translation, type lifting, and lattices. Prerequisite: 16:615:530.
16:615:532Topics in Semantics I (3) Selected topics in model-theoretic semantics. Questions, focus, presupposition, conversational implicature, context dependence, and context change. Prerequisite: 16:615:531 or permission of instructor.
16:615:533Topics in Semantics II (3) Selected topics in model-theoretic semantics, modals, conditionals, indexicals, tense, aspect, and genericity. Prerequisite: 16:615:531 or permission of instructor.
16:615:535Seminar in Semantics (3) Exploration of current issues in semantic theory. Topics vary. Prerequisite: 16:615:532 or 533 or permission of instructor.
16:615:610Formal Methods for Linguistics (3) Selected topics in logic, algebra, formal languages, computation, mathematical analysis, statistics, and/or formal learning theory, with applications to linguistics. Prerequisites: 16:615:511, 521, 531, or permission of instructor.
16:615:631Field Methods for Linguistics (3) Analysis of the linguistic structure of an unfamiliar language, based on in-class work with a native-speaker consultant. Prerequisites: 16:615:511, 521, 531, or permission of instructor.
16:615:660Special Topics in Current Linguistic Theory (3) Topics in current linguistic research that cross subdisciplinary boundaries. Prerequisites: 16:615:511, 521, 531, or permission of instructor.
16:615:670Seminar in Learnability and Linguistic Theory (3) Examines approaches to language learning, focusing on relationships between learning proposals and linguistic theory. Includes concepts from computational learning theory relevant to understanding the learning implications of contemporary linguistic theory. Prerequisite: 16:615:520 or permission of instructor.
16:615:690,691Qualifying Paper Workshop (3,3) Students working on qualifying papers present work in progress for discussion and criticism. Prerequisites: 16:615:511, 521, 531.
