Syntax (Mondattan) in spring 2015Hordós Marianna,

description & set texts

The course discusses Chapter 1 to Chapter 4 of Newson, M. A Basic English Grammar with Exercises and helps promote students'understanding of current syntactic theory from a practical perspective. It runs parallel to the corresponding lecture but by no means does it strive to replace it, instead, although roughly the same topics are discussed (e.g. basic theoretical notions, word categories, X-bar theory,Theta Theory, the structure of DPs), the seminars are intended to supplement and complement the lecture course.
