Inhalt/e

This seminar consists of two large building blocks of grammar: morphology and syntax. It will facilitate students’ understanding of how word formation and sentence structure work in English and other languages. 

Special emphases will be placed on approaching morphology and syntax from different angles and learning how to apply this knowledge in specific research tasks.

Topics:

-         Morphology and generative grammar.

-         Words and word formation.

-         Parallels between syntax and morphology.

-         Syntax: generative and functional grammar approaches.

-         Sentence structure.

-         Clause and phrase structure. 

-         Morphology and syntax: application of the theoretical knowledge.
