Scope and content

This series begins with a register of students in Italian, Spanish, and Phonetics for 1914-1915 for all four years in the pass and honours courses.

Professor W. H. Fraser's lectures in Italian and Spanish cover a substantial portion of the period (1887-1916) that he held the position of lecturer and then professor at the University of Toronto. The lectures in Italian are for third and fourth year students. They begin in 1892 and, though some are undated, end around 1910. Once written, the lectures, or parts thereof, were delivered in subsequent years to students in the same year and, occasionally, other years as well. Accompanying the formal lecture notes are lessons, notebooks on morphology and phonology, miscellaneous exercises, and notes on humour.

The dated lectures in Spanish cover the period 1892-1911; some are undated and were written for third and fourth year students. Topics include the novel, history of the language, phonology, phonetics, prosody, and literature.

There is one file of lectures in French, for a third year course offered in 1893-1894.
