    The course is an introduction to the diversity existing within the set of those natural languages that following sociopolitical-historical criteria can be labeled varieties of Latin American Spanish. The approach will combine traditional dialectology, linguistic theory, and sociolinguistic treatment. Special attention will be given to the Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Dominican varieties spoken in the United States. In general the main focus will be on phonological diversity (i.e., diversity in pronunciation), but attention will be given also to morphological, syntactic, and lexical diversity. Taught in English; readings are in English
