ENGL 474 | Syntactic and Morphological Analysis

Course Description

This course is a general introduction to the grammatical principles governing the structure of words (morphology) and the structure of sentences (syntax) across human languages. We will be focusing on similarities and differences across languages from both formal and functional points of view. Students will learn to read, interpret, and analyze linguistic data, as well as develop analytical skills for exploring the complex structure of words and sentences. Evidence from language acquisition and sentence processing will help us to gain insight into the representation of linguistic structure in the human mind. Lectures, exercises, activities, and exams will use data drawn from English, as well as from a variety of different language families.
