Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Grammar is often given an unduly narrow definition as Sentence Grammar, i.e. the organisation of language in terms of propositional concepts and clauses. In this seminar we will explore grammar beyond Sentence Grammar and investigate the important domain of Extra Clausal Constituents (Dik 1997), also referred to as supplements (Huddleston & Pullum 2002), disjuncts (Espinal 1991) or theticals (Kaltenböck, Heine, Kuteva 2011).
This domain can be seen as comprising a range of different elements which are all syntactically independent from their linguistic environment, such as comment clauses (e.g. I think, I guess) and other parentheticals, discourse markers, reporting clauses (e.g. she said), tag questions (e.g. isn’t it), left-dislocation (John, I haven’t seen him for a while), right-dislocation, afterthoughts, appositions, vocatives, interjections (shit!), formulae of social exchange (Good morning), imperatives, non-restrictive relative clauses etc.
These elements are typical of spoken discourse where they are particularly well suited for attending to the communicative needs of the immediate discourse situation. In the seminar we will investigate the formal and functional properties of such Extra Clausal Constituents and how they can be accounted for in a grammatical model.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Participants will be assessed on the basis of their oral presentations, written research papers, and in-class participation. All presentations take place during a seminar conference on Friday 7 December (afternoon) and Saturday 8 December.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Participants will
- develop an understanding of the functional properties of grammar and the close link between grammar and context
- conduct their own empirical investigations and gain insight into linguistic methods
- work with and deepen their understanding of basic syntactic concepts
- become aware of problems of grammatical modeling and different theoretical approaches to grammar

Prüfungsstoff

The initial sessions will be used to introduce participants to the topic and help them develop their research questions. This introductory phase involves the discussion of articles and book chapters as well as practical work with computer corpora and other language data. The second phase of the course is reserved for individual project work. In the final phase participants will present their projects and findings in oral presentations and written research papers.
