Jenna Conklin

Code-switching, or shifting between two shared languages, is a common practice of bilinguals around the globe. This course reviews key linguistic research on code-switching, focusing particularly on when and why code-switching occurs and what linguistic, cultural, and cognitive restrictions it is subject to. These questions will take us on a wide-ranging exploration of bilingualism as a phenomenon, touching on sociolinguistic issues, questions of language structure, and the impacts of code-switching on pronunciation, as well as a variety of issues in the study of multilingualism broadly construed, such as how bilinguals maintain multiple linguistic systems within a single cognitive environment.

LING 285.07 Japanese Linguistics in Kyoto Seminar: The Linguistics of the Japanese Writing System 6 credits

Open: Size: 25, Registered: 18, Waitlist: 0

Synonym: 63924

Mike Flynn

The Japanese writing system is often said to be the most complicated in the world, even as Japan has among the very highest literacy rates. In this course, we will closely examine this extraordinary aspect of Japanese society, including its history, relationship with the spoken language, psychological processing, and neural implementation. Finally, we will examine the controversy concerning the use of Kanji, its political ramifications, and look at how the Japanese are responding to various pressures on the system. Experience with Japanese is not necessary.

This course examines the nature of the Japanese language through the lens of contemporary linguistic theory.

This course is not intended to teach students to speak Japanese, and while experience with Japanese would be helpful, it is not necessary.
