Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this proseminar we will go deeper into some of the theoretical and empirical issues introduced in the course 'VU Grammatiktheorie', at the same time as we broaden our scope of inquiry to yet other syntactic phenomena. In particular, we will look at issues surrounding argument and event structure (so-called “first-phase syntax”), island phenomena, relative clauses, agreement, theories of case, as well as the (nature of the) interaction of syntax with other modules of the grammar, bearing in mind all along the issue of what the locus of cross-linguistic variation might be.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students are expected to do the readings before coming to class, come to class, participate actively by asking and answering questions, take turns in protocoling the sessions, make a presentation with a handout, and write either an overview paper, or a squib analyzing something having to do with the topic of the proseminar and giving arguments for preferring a given analysis to alternatives from the literature (students will all along receive hands-on training on how to write a squib/paper).

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Anwesenheitspflicht (max. 2x fehlen).
Students have a good command of theoretical issues in modern syntactic research and their empirical foundations.
