TR 01:20 pm-02:50 pm NEILL 404 Stephanie Farmer
*No prerequisites* Human languages exhibit incredible diversity when it comes to talking about time and space. In English, we can't mention an event without situating it in the past, present or future, while most Southeast Asian languages get along just fine without marking tense at all. Some languages talk about direction with cardinal terms like 'north' and 'south', while others make distinctions like 'toward the river' versus 'away from the river'. This course is an introduction to linguistic diversity through the lens of time and space. We will survey all corners of the world, looking at the fascinating ways human languages diverge from one another in an effort to pinpoint what is common between them.
