A) Birth of the discipline: historical and cultural context. The genealogical tree model (Stammbaum) and the wave model. The Neogrammarians, the concept of phonetic law. Languages of the world.
B) Linguistic change at various levels of analysis: sound change (phonetic and phonological level), morphological level, syntactic level, and semantic-lexical level. Grimm's law. The two phenomena of analogy and grammaticalisation. Language contact and interference: loanwords, loan translations (or calque), linguistic area.
C) Linguistic varieties and variability: standard and non-standard forms. Languages and dialects.

Examination Methods

Written test + oral examination.

The examination consists of two parts: a written test and an oral examination. The written test consists of about 10 questions, requiring closed or open answered, based on the references for the course. If the written test is successfully passed, the oral examination will be a further discussion on the topics of the course.

In both examination parts, students are expected to demonstrate their knowledge of the fundamentals and technical terminology of the discipline and be able to apply the acquired knowledge in the description of the language change at the different levels of linguistic analysis, the forms of interference and language contact and the different manifestations of geographic and sociolinguistic variation.

In particular, the correctness and relevance of the answers, the use of the specific terminology for the discipline, the ability to provide corresponding definitions and examples will be evaluated.

***PLEASE NOTICE that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and in accordance with the University of Verona guidelines, during ​the 2020 summer session the assessment modality will be modified as follows: ONLINE ORAL EXAM. Further information are available on the Moodle page of the course.
