LING 11.18 History of the Arabic Language

In this course, we will survey the history of the Arabic language and the current linguistic situation across the Arabic speaking world. We will learn about the foundations of Arabic grammatical and philological tradition, and compare these with modern linguistic perspectives. We will also engage with the ideologies surrounding the multiple dialectal varieties, which serve as both liturgical and administrative languages, as well as languages of thought, conversation, and artistic expression.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
