Typological classification classes languages based on the properties that they exhibit.This can be done in many ways – phonologically, syntactically or morphologically. two.lf. Genetic classification classes languages in terms of their descent – whether they are related. This overlaps with historical linguistics. three.lf. Areal classification classes languages that are in geographic contact. Languages in close contact with one another take on features of the others due to overlap in speaker population. We'll only look at typological and genetic classifications here, since areal classification is very intricate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
