LIN 318 / SLA 320

Structure of Lithuanian

Milena Sereikaite

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

This course will expand your knowledge of linguistic phenomena and linguistic theory through the lens of Lithuanian, an understudied Baltic language. Our focus will be on morphological and syntactic phenomena, covering topics such as compounding, gender features, affixation, passive vs. impersonal constructions, and case. Throughout the course, we will address historical and sociolinguistic factors that have influenced the linguistic structure of Lithuanian, its dialects, and other Baltic languages like Latvian and Latgalian. We will also draw typological connections between Baltic and other language families, especially Slavic and Germanic.
