A structural analysis and careful examination of Modern Standard Arabic from a theoretical standpoint, this book explains the principles underlying the phonology, morphology, syntax, script, and grammar of modern written Arabic. An introduction to the development of the language from the fifth and sixth centuries through the nineteenth century is included. The author goes on to describe the logical structure of the language, to consider the development of the lexicon, and to comment on how the language has diverged from the Classical. (less)

Studies the relation between imaginative texts and the culture surrounding them. Emphasizes ways in which imaginative works absorb, reflect, and conflict with reigning attitudes and world views. Instruction and practice in oral and written communication. Topic for Fall: Ethical Interpretation. Topic for Spring: Women Reading, Women Writing. The course examines the earliest emergence of stories about King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table in the context of the first wave of British Imperialism and the expanded powers of the Catholic Church during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The morphology of Arthurian romance will be set off against original historical documents and chronicle sources for the English conquests in Brittany, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland to understand the ways in which these new attitudes towards Empire were being mythologized. Authors will include Bede, Geoffrey of Monmouth, ChrĚŠtien de Troyes, Marie de France, Gerald of Wales, together with some lesser known works like the Perilous Graveyard, the Knight with the Sword, and Perlesvaus, or the High History of the Holy Graal. Special attention will be paid to how the narrative material of the story gets transformed according to the particular religious and political agendas of each new author. (less)

This online interface processes MSA using four different modes. The 'Resolve' mode provides tokenization and morphological analysis of the inserted text while the 'Inflect' mode lets users inflect words into the forms required by context. The 'Derive' mode allows users to derive words of similar meaning but different grammatical category. The 'Lookup' mode can lookup lexical entries by the citation form and nests of entries by the root; it also allows users to search in the English translations. (less)

Students are introduced to the streaking technique to isolate colonies from a mixed liquid bacteria culture and to several standard microbiological identification tests. The morphology of isolated colonies and the morphology and Gram stain reaction of the cells of each colony are examined. Each cell type is examined for the ability to use glucose as a carbon source, ability to form endospores, oxygen requirements for growth, and motility using prepared micrographs. Students compare the characteristics of the cells of the mixed bacterial culture with the same set of characteristics of six bacterial species of known identity, in an attempt at an initial identification of the bacteria of the mixed culture.

Introduction to the current research questions in phonological theory. Topics include: metrical and prosodic structure; features and their phonetic basis in speech; acquisition and parsing; phonological domains; morphology; and language change and reconstruction. Activities include problem solving, squibs, and data collection. The year-long Introduction to Phonology reviews at the graduate level fundamental notions of phonological analysis and introduces students to current debates, research and analytical techniques. The Fall term reviews issues pertaining to the nature of markedness and phonological representations - features, prosodies, syllables and stress - while the second term deals with the relation between the phonological component and the lexicon, morphology and syntax. The second term course will also treat in more detail certain phonological phenomena. (less)

Investigating a Deep Sea Mystery is based on Deep-sea mystery solved: astonishing larval transformation and extreme sexual dimorphism unite three fish families by Johnson, et al. (2009)* published in Biology Letters, Royal Society. The deep sea fishes at the heart of the investigation and this activity were historically classified into three families or clades based on the obvious morphological differences between the members of each group. Over time, as new data was accumulated, a new hypothesis was generated; the three fish clades were really one. Johnson, et al. found patterns in collection data that supported an alternative relationship; that they are the males, females, and larvae of a single family or clade, and that the morphological differences are the result of extreme ontogenetic (developmental) metamorphosis and sexual dimorphism. In this activity students follow the steps of the science team to unravel the mystery of the fishes' classification by analyzing some of the same morphological and phylogenetic data as the science team.

In modern systematics, both morphological features and DNA or amino acid sequences are used to determine phylogenetic relationships. This two-week exercise demonstrates two methods used by systematists to create phylogenetic trees. In the first week students score morphological features of fictional and real organisms, create data matrices showing number of synapomorphies, and then use the matrices to draw phylogenetic trees. In the second week they use Bio Workbench, an online bioinformatics software package, to create phylogenetic trees based on nucleotide or amino acid sequences. Students learn how modern systematics helps answer questions about ecology, evolution, and behavior. (less)
