Course Description

Please refer to the course schedule for course days, time, room location, prerequisites and possible cross-listings: http://registrar.utexas.edu/schedules/

We will study both traditional grammar and generative grammar as alternative, sometimes complementary, ways of understanding English syntax. We will draw dozens of old Reed-Kellogg diagrams and parse sentences until we can take apart and put back together almost any syntactic structure that anyone would want to know about. The attention to linguistics will be less theoretical than applied. The idea will be to illuminate some of the traditional problems of English studies, including style at the level of the sentence.

Grading Policy

Frequent homework exercises on syntactic structures. Three tests, 27% each; Homework and class participation, 19%
