This course continues the work of LING 603, but with a shift in emphasis from acquiring basic skills to using them to evaluate and construct theories. The course is structured around two main topics, each of which is explored in depth: segmental phonology, including harmony, neutralization, and other processes; and the interface of phonology with other grammatical components, including phonetics, morphology, the lexicon, and the syntax.
