Learning Objectives

The course aims at both making students achieve a B1 (CEFR) level of Spanish language and giving them the basic elements for a metalinguistic reasoning on Spanish phonetics, phonology and morphology.

Program

1. Spanish phonetics and phonology:

  • Introduction to phonetics and phonology: basic elements.
  • Articulatory phonetics and phonation.
  • Vowels.
  • Consonants.
  • Syllables.
  • Accent.
  • Phonetic and phonological transcription.

2. Spanish morphology:

  • Introduction to morphology: theoretical concepts.
  • Inflection.
  • Derivation.
  • Word formation.
  • Morphological segmentation.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding: students acquire the theoretical fundamentals of Spanish phonetics, phonology and morphology. They learn how phonation works and understand the specifics of sounds of Spanish language, as well as its word formation processes.
Applying knowledge and understanding: students will be able to apply the acquired theoretical knowledge to the metalinguistic analysis of and reasoning on Spanish phonetics, phonology and morphology.
Making judgements: students will be able to judge the formal correcteness (both phonetically and morphologically) of Spanish words and sentences.
Communication skills: students master a B1 (CEFR) level of Spanish language.
Learning skills: students acquire instruments and notions necessary to approach the study of Spanish language and linguistics.
