On completion of this module, students should be able to
- understand the main methodologies of Romance linguistics as a comparative discipline
- see the point of a comparative approach to Romance languages (and by extension, to any other group of cognate languages)
- appreciate the usefulness of sociolinguistics in linguistic study (both historical and synchronic).
It is intended (although not exclusively) to serve as a 'bridging' or comparative element in a degree scheme in Romance Languages.
Students taking the module should normally have studied at least two Romance Languages.
