About

This course is an advanced introduction to the scientific study of grammatical structures in African languages. The domains in focus are phonology, morphology and syntax.
One African language, chosen according to the expertise of the teacher, is taken as the point of departure, and a deeper understanding is achieved through the study of a second language of your choice. You will also gain insights into each other's chosen languages through mutual presentations by the peers in the group. Thereby different kinds of variation between linguistic structures in individual African languages will be illustrated, and since the grammatical properties are discussed from a typological perspective, the course will highlight what is characteristic of African languages as compared to other languages of the world.
