Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Taking the area of English grammar in general and syntax in particular as an example, this course provides students with more detailed insights into one area of linguistics and prepares them for their first small-scale research project.

After revisiting concepts from the introductory lectures ‘Grammar in Use’ and ‘English Linguistics’, we will explore the topic from different angles, such as tense & aspect and the genitive alternation. In addition, we will discuss the process of empirical research and look at data elicitation and corpus linguistic methods.

Some of the questions we will investigate in the course of the term are:
- Is there meaning in grammar and/or syntax?
- How do we define grammatical concepts we take for granted, such as ‘nouns’ and ‘verbs’?
- How do we differentiate between different grammatical ways of referring to the same situation?

Aims
In addition to exploring these questions and learning about research on syntax, participants will also learn how to find relevant literature on a specific research topic/question, critically analyze and reflect on existing research in the field and collect first experience in planning, conducting and writing about a small-scale linguistic research project.

Methods
Reading, discussions, peer-group interaction, in-class and online exercises, lecturer input, autonomous research, poster presentations

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Student assessment is based on active participation in class, online assignments, regular readings, the paper proposal, an oral poster presentation and the PS paper.
