Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Content
This lecture provides an overview of concepts and terminology used in grammatical analysis and demonstrates how these are applied in the analysis of syntactic structures and texts. 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 (using standard terminology)
- 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 reference books
Methods
The lecture course consists of lectures and an accompanying moodle course. Further optional classes are on offer too (see above).

Assessment and permitted materials

Written examination (two dates per semester: mid-December and end of January), multiple option (90 minute "Modulprüfung" in conjunction with ISL1)
No materials permitted in the exam

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimum pass level: Both parts of the Modulprüfung in combination must reach 60% while one part may not be any lower than 55% (with the other part making up the missing percentages to reach the 60% overall). There are two exceptions to this.
* If you get a 1 (Sehr gut) in one exam, you only need 52% in the other exam to pass the Modulprüfung.
* If you get a 2 (Gut) in one exam, you only need 54% in the other exam to pass the Modulprüfung.

Grading scale: 1 (sehr gut) 100-85%; 2 (gut) 84-77%; 3 (befriedigend), 76-69%; 4 (genügend) 68-60%; 5 (nicht genügend) 59-0%.
