AL4303 - Principles of Phonological Analysis
(3 undergraduate credits)                                                                               
By the end of this course, students will be able to recognize the difference between phonetic (etic) and phonological (emic) data and identify phonological hierarchy and intonation in data. They will be able to recognize the use of distinctive features, natural classes and phonetic plausibility; identify phones in complementary distribution, free variation and contrast in identical / analogous environment; recognize major phonological processes and common conditioning environments, including adjacent segments, syllables and larger prosodic units; and apply concepts of tone analysis, and morphophonemics to data.
