This course is designed to offer a detailed analysis of English morphology. The first part of the course discusses the internal structure of English words through an in-depth analysis of word-formation processes (e.g., inflection, derivation and compounding). This is followed by an examination of productivity and historical sources of English word formation. Throughout the course, the interrelations between Morphology and other sub-disciplines of Linguistics (i.e., Phonology, Semantics and Syntax) will be examined. Equal emphasis will be placed on morphological theory and analysis.
Syntax is a sub-discipline of linguistics that deals with sentence structure—that is, how grammatical sentences are formed and structured. This course aims to introduce contemporary work in syntactic theory. It aims to provide an overview of the fundamental principles and descriptive devices used in theoretical syntax and more specifically in the Minimalist Program as outlined by Chomsky. The first part of the course introduces the basis for postulating the Minimalist Theory of Syntax and the reasons for establishing specific Categories. The second part of the course focuses on how to produce phrases, clauses, and sentences which can be represented in terms of tree diagrams. The objective is to prepare students to apply syntactic knowledge to other more applied disciplines.
