Description
LINGUISTIC STRUCTURES OF ENGLISH
This course is a survey of phonological, morphological, and syntactic structures of English, with an emphasis on its typologically unusual characteristics. The course will cover how English words, phrases, and sentences are put together, as well as current and historical trends that have led to English as it is used today. We will also address differences between prescriptive rules of how English "should be", and descriptive generalizations about how English actually is. Lecture format with class discussion.
