Contrastive Grammar: German-English
Credit Hours: 
3

This course provides an overview of the differences between German and English grammar, with a focus on not only the individual study of the core linguistic modules of phonetics/phonology, morphology and syntax, but also the interaction between those modules, especially in bilinguals. Balancing the theoretical with the practical, we will analyze our own speech, and compare it to recent literature on the topic. Through such study, students will gain a better understanding of the differences between the two language-specific grammars, and will acquire tools to analyze and improve their own spoken German. Language of instruction will be English; however, has a language prerequisite and counts toward the degree as a course taught in German.
