Discussion of the most important morphological and syntactic processes in English. The areas covered will include affixation and other forms of word-building in English, and a descriptive analysis of English sentence, clause and phrase structure.

Themen

  • The units of morphology: word - morph, morpheme, allomorphs
  • Identification of morphemes
  • Inflection versus word formation
  • The nature of morphemes
  • Lexicalization processes and productivity restrictions
  • Morphology and its relation to syntax
  • Clause types
  • Formal and functional categories in clauses
  • The structure of phrases
  • Specification, modification, complementation
  • Clausal processes
  • Descriptive syntax vs. theories of syntax

Lehrziel

To deepen awareness of morphological and syntactic processes in English

Erwartete Vorkenntnisse

Knowledge from the introductory courses in English linguistics - if you haven't attended them, this course will not make sense, and it's not a good idea to do the introductory courses and this one in parallel either!
