Comparative Grammar: The Old Germanic Languages
Credit Hours:
3.0

This course provides a comparative overview of the structural features of the Old Germanic Languages, including: Gothic, Old Norse, Old Saxon, Old English, Old High German, Old Low Franconian, and Old Frisian. The focus will be on both the linguistic differences resultant from language change; and also on linguistic similarities, based on retention of inherited features. Particular emphasis will be placed on typologically rare linguistic features within Germanic. This course is intended to provide broader inter- and intra-Germanic context for both students of Historical Linguistics, and as well as students of Modern German.
