Further study of historical developments in the Romance languages will be interleaved with readings of significant Romance texts from the 9th to 13th centuries, both notarial and literary. Topics covered include: More on medieval diglossia and scribal practices. How medieval glosses bear on the study of early Romance. Losses and innovation in the Romance lexicon. Formation of three high-frequency irregular verbs: be, have, and go. Raising and yod effects in Spanish and Italian, yod metathesis in French. Verb morphology from Latin to Romance with emphasis on the synthetic past, the periphrastic past and future, newly created past participles, and the conditional mood. Students will become acquainted with the resources for studying medieval documents and produce an annotated translation of an excerpt from a pre-1400 Romance text as a final project.
