Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course description: The non Indo-European language for this semester will be Wolof. Wolof is a North Atlantic (Niger-Congo) language, mainly spoken in Senegambia.
This introductory course to Wolof grammar will cover the basics of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantico-pragmatics and socio-cultural aspects of the language.
Topics include, among others, vowel harmony, verbal derivation, adverbs and particles, question formation and information structure. Students are encouraged to explore one of these topics or come up with a topic of their own for the term paper.
Materials will be drawn from academic books and articles, but also from Wolof music and narratives.
Course objectives: Students will be familiarized with the basic elements of Wolof grammar and get insight into some hot topics currently debated in the field.
Students will acquire a basic understanding of Wolof culture.
Students will learn to formally analyse a language that is not Indo-European and that they are most likely not familiar with.
Students will learn some basic methods for doing fieldwork.
