Practising Syntax

Class at Faculty of Arts |



This course will focus on practical application of some syntactic concepts introduced in morphology and the lecture on syntax. It is primarily intended for the third year students. While the mandatory seminar focuses mainly on performing syntactic analysis, this seminar aims at the student´s practical ability to use these constructions, also with respect to specific lexical items. The topics include description of types of verb complementation (valency, prepositional verbs and their syntactic properties, passives), specific syntactic constructions (nonfinite constructions, subject raising), the syntactically determined use of articles, or the syntactic means of condensation, and a complex analysis of a text.
