Advanced Syntax: Course Description

Syntax is generally comprised of the principles and rules that preside over sentence structure in a language.

Professor Elena Anagnostopoulou and Professor Daniel Fox examine how sentence structure varies from language to language in logical form and covert movement. Students in this course will study the effect word movement within a sentence can have on interpretation. This course will explore how some languages can scramble word order in a sentence without changing the core meaning of the sentence. 'Advanced Syntax' is in a lecture format

Lecture notes, suggested reading and assignments are available online for free for this course. If you are interested in this free course, visit the Advanced Syntax course page.
