Content

It demonstrates how grammar is used for communication and how language structures can be explained and evaluated in context. In this way, this course provides an important foundation for both language classes and linguistics courses.

Aims

- to identify and name the individual parts of syntactic structures
- to talk informedly about key grammatical categories and explain their use in a given context
- to recognise and rectify common errors
- to make independent and judicious use of grammar resources

Methods
The lecture course consists of weekly lectures and an accompanying Moodle course.

Please note that tutorials (2 parallel groups) accompany the lecture course. Times and venues to be announced on Moodle and in the separate description of the tutorials in u:find. These courses are an additional offer to help you pass the exam; attendance is not mandatory but highly recommendable.
