ROML 578: Comparative History of the Romance Languages
Location: Room TBA
In this course we will examine and analyze the four most widely spoken Romance languages – Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian – on a comparative and contrastive basis, with a primary emphasis on their diachronic divergence from Classical Latin and the regional varieties of Spoken (Vulgar) Latin. As time and context allow, we will also discuss other languages such as Romanian, Catalan, Galician, Venetian, and so on.
