Course Description: This course focuses on words in Japanese and English -- how these words are made, where new words come from, how the meanings and sounds of words change over time, and how individual words fit into the overall system of a language. This course introduces the basics of morphology-- the way words are built from parts such as roots and affixes. It also considers some of the other interesting aspects of words, including etymology (the history of words), patterns of semantic change, phonological aspects of words (such as stress in English and pitch accent and rendaku in Japanese), and recent trends in word creation, including as the rise of blends, acronyms and use of characters in electronic communication.
