Description
ACCELERATED SYNTACTIC THEORY
This course will familiarize students with theoretical approaches in classic Principles and Parameters theory and the application of these approaches to some of the defining syntactic structures of English. Students will gain: knowledge of syntactic argumentation, how evidence from data is used incrementally to argue for and against theoretical proposals; the ability to apply syntactic theory to structures in languages other than English; and, insight into alternative approaches to syntactic theory.
