G-LSUD2 ThLing221 Syntax

Course type

Required elective


This course aims at introducing students to the syntactic description of English as well as syntactic theory. Based on data from English and other languages, students are urged to identify syntactic rules and generalizations and to apply knowledge of these rules to the description of particular sentences. A number of theoretical questions are raised and various tools of syntactic analysis are introduced. At the end of the course, students are expected to be in a position to evaluate sentences as to their well-formedness, to justify their analyses and to relate data to theory in a principled manner.
